IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name:
erythritol kinase (D-erythritol 1-phosphate-forming)
Other name:
eryA (gene name)
Systematic name:
ATP:erythritol 1-phosphotransferase



The enzyme, characterized from the pathogenic bacterium Brucella abortus, which causes brucellosis in livestock, participates in erythritol catabolism. cf. EC, erythritol kinase (D-erythritol 4-phosphate-forming).
