Short name: Dehydro-deoxyglucarate_dehyd

Family relationships

  • DapA-like (IPR002220)
    • 5-dehydro-4-deoxyglucarate dehydratase (IPR017655)

Description

5-dehydro-4-deoxyglucarate dehydratase catalyses the dehydration of the substrate (diol to ketone + water), and causes the decarboxylation of the intermediate product to yield 2-oxoglutarate semialdehyde (2,5-dioxopentanoate). 5-dehydro-4-deoxyglucarate dehydratase is usually observed in the vicinity of transporters and dehydratases handling D-galactarate and D-gluconate as well as aldehyde dehydrogenases which convert the product to alpha-ketoglutarate.
