Methylthioribulose-1-phosphate dehydratase, eukaryotes (IPR027514)

Short name: Salvage_MtnB_euk

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships


Methylthioribulose-1-phosphate dehydratase catalyses the dehydration of methylthioribulose-1-phosphate (MTRu-1-P) into 2,3-diketo-5-methylthiopentyl-1-phosphate (DK-MTP-1-P). It functions in the methionine salvage pathway.

This entry also includes probable bifunctional methylthioribulose-1-phosphate dehydratase/enolase-phosphatase E1 from plants.
