Homologous Superfamily

Phosphopentomutase DeoB cap domain superfamily (IPR024052)

Short name: Phosphopentomutase_DeoB_cap_sf

Overlapping entries


Phosphopentomutase is involved in the purine and pyrimidine salvage pathway of nucleotide synthesis. It catalyses a phosphotransfer on ribose and deoxyribose, converting D-ribose 1-phosphate to D-ribose 5-phosphate, and 2-deoxy-D-ribose 1-phosphate to 2-deoxy-D-ribose 5-phosphate [PMID: 9692190]. Phosphopentomutase is composed of a core domain and a cap domain. This superfamily represents the cap domain [PMID: 21193409].
