Family

Methylthioribulose-1-phosphate dehydratase (IPR017714)

Short name: MethylthioRu-1-P_deHdtase_MtnB

Family relationships

Description

Members of this family are the methylthioribulose-1-phosphate dehydratase of the methionine salvage pathway. This pathway allows methylthioadenosine, left over from polyamine biosynthesis, to be recycled to methionine.

Proteins in this entry also include the bifunctional enzyme MtnB/MtnX from bacteria and the probable bifunctional methylthioribulose-1-phosphate dehydratase/enolase-phosphatase E1 from plants.
