FGGY carbohydrate kinase, pentulose kinase (IPR006003)

Short name: FGGY_RbtK-like

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships


This entry represents a subfamily of the FGGY family of carbohydrate kinases. This subfamily is closely related to a set of ribulose kinases, and many members are designated ribitol kinase. However, the member from Klebsiella pneumoniae, rbtK, from a ribitol catabolism operon, accepts D-ribulose and to a lesser extent D-arabinitol and ribitol [PMID: 9639934].
