Short name: Fuc_isomerase_C

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Domain relationships



L-fucose isomerase (EC: converts the aldose L-fucose into the corresponding ketose L-fuculose during the first step in fucose metabolism using Mn2+ as a cofactor. The enzyme is a hexamer, forming the largest structurally known ketol isomerase, and has no sequence or structural similarity with other ketol isomerases. The structure was determined by X-ray crystallography at 2.5 A resolution [PMID: 9367760].

This entry represents the C-terminal domain of L-fucose isomerase.
