NagB/RpiA transferase-like (IPR037171)

Short name: NagB/RpiA_transferase-like

Overlapping entries

Description

This entry is composed of multiple transferases, mainly ribose-5-phosphate isomerase A (RpiA), glucosamine-6-phosphate deaminase (NagB) and 6-phosphogluconolactonase (6PGL). RpiA and 6PGL are involved in the pentose phosphate pathway while NagB is involved in the last step of the N-acetylneuraminate degradation pathway. These enzymes share a common core alpha/beta structure [PMID: 17196981].
