Short name: Gluconate_dehydratase

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships


Enzymes in the gluconate dehydratase family catalyze the dehydration of gluconate to 2-dehydro-3-deoxy-d-gluconate as part of the Entner-Doudoroff pathway. The experimentally characterized enzyme from Sulfolobus solfataricus also catalyzes the dehydration of galactonate, while the experimentally characterized enzyme from Thermoproteus tenax does not [PMID: 15474024].
