IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name:
dTDP-6-deoxy-L-talose 4-dehydrogenase
Other names:
TDP-6-deoxy-L-talose dehydrogenase
dTDP-6-deoxy-L-talose dehydrogenase (4-reductase)
thymidine diphospho-6-deoxy-L-talose dehydrogenase
dTDP-6-deoxy-L-talose:NADP+ 4-oxidoreductase
Systematic name:
dTDP-6-deoxy-β-L-talose:NADP+ 4-oxidoreductase



Oxidation on the 4-position of the hexose moiety takes place only while the substrate is bound to another enzyme that catalyses epimerization at C-3 and C-5.
