Xylose isomerase, actinobacteria (IPR013453)

Short name: XylA_actinobac

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships


This is an enzyme which as well as interconverting D-xylose and D-xylulose, is also active as a D-glucose isomerase. It is tetrameric and dependent on a divalent cation, either Mg2+, Co2+ or Mn2+, as characterised in Arthrobacter [PMID: 1854338]. Enzymes in this entry differ substantially from the D-xylose isomerases of IPR013452.
