Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships



This family consists of several bacterial thuA like proteins, including thuA from Sinorhizobium meliloti (Q9R9Q3) [PMID: 16042015]. The S. meliloti thuA gene is part of the thu operon (thuEFGKAB) that codes for transport and utilization functions of the disaccharide trehalose. ThuA is an enzyme(s) involved in the conversion of disaccharides to their respective 3-keto derivatives [PMID: 23772075].
