Other name(s): dTDP-6-deoxy-hex-4-ulose isomerase; TDP-6-deoxy-hex-4-ulose isomerase; FdtA
Systematic name: dTDP-4-dehydro-6-deoxy-α-D-glucopyranose:dTDP-3-dehydro-6-deoxy-α-D-galactopyranose isomerase
Comments: The enzyme is involved in the biosynthesis of dTDP-3-acetamido-3,6-dideoxy-α-D-galactose. Four moieties of α-D-rhamnose and two moities of 3-acetamido-3,6-dideoxy-α-D-galactose form the repeating unit of the glycan chain in the S-layer of the bacterium Aneurinibacillus thermoaerophilus.
