FunFam 36565: Transketolase 1, thiamin-binding protein

There are 10 EC terms in this cluster

Please note: EC annotations are assigned to the full protein sequence rather than individual protein domains. Since a given protein can contain multiple domains, it is possible that some of the annotations below come from additional domains that occur in the same protein, but have been classified elsewhere in CATH.

Note: The search results have been sorted with the annotations that are found most frequently at the top of the list. The results can be filtered by typing text into the search box at the top of the table.

EC Term Annotations Evidence
Transketolase. [EC:]
Sedoheptulose 7-phosphate + D-glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate = D-ribose 5-phosphate + D-xylulose 5-phosphate.
  • Wide specificity for both reactants, e.g. converts hydroxypyruvate and R-CHO into CO(2) and R-CHOH-CO-CH(2)OH.
  • The enzyme from the bacterium Alcaligenes faecalis shows high activity with D-erythrose 4-phosphate as acceptor.

Formaldehyde transketolase. [EC:]
D-xylulose 5-phosphate + formaldehyde = D-glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate + glycerone.
  • Also converts hydroxypyruvate and formaldehyde into glycerone and CO(2).
  • Not identical with EC

3-methyl-2-oxobutanoate dehydrogenase (2-methylpropanoyl-transferring). [EC:]
3-methyl-2-oxobutanoate + [dihydrolipoyllysine-residue (2-methylpropanoyl)transferase] lipoyllysine = [dihydrolipoyllysine- residue (2-methylpropanoyl)transferase] S-(2-methylpropanoyl)dihydrolipoyllysine + CO(2).
  • It acts not only on 3-methyl-2-oxobutanaoate, but also on 4-methyl-2- oxopentanoate and (S)-3-methyl-2-oxopentanoate, so that it acts on the 2-oxo acids that derive from the action of transaminases on valine, leucine and isoleucine.
  • It is a component of the multienzyme 3-methyl-2-oxobutanoate dehydrogenase complex in which multiple copies of it are bound to a core of molecules of EC, which also binds multiple copies of EC
  • It does not act on free lipoamide or lipoyllysine, but only on the lipoyllysine residue in EC
  • Formerly EC

Transaldolase. [EC:]
Sedoheptulose 7-phosphate + D-glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate = D-erythrose 4-phosphate + D-fructose 6-phosphate.

    Capsanthin/capsorubin synthase. [EC:]
    (1) Violaxanthin = capsorubin. (2) Antheraxanthin = capsanthin.
    • Induced during chromoplast differentiation in plants.
    • Isomerization of the epoxide ring of violaxanthin gives the cyclopentyl-ketone of capsorubin or capsanthin.
    4 A0A0H3AQ76 C0G8C5 C4ISU2 C4WLR5
    1-deoxy-D-xylulose-5-phosphate synthase. [EC:]
    Pyruvate + D-glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate = 1-deoxy-D-xylulose 5-phosphate + CO(2).
    • The enzyme forms part of an alternative nonmevalonate pathway for terpenoid biosynthesis.
    • Formerly EC
    4 A0A0P8A5X4 A0A1L7RJK6 A0A1L7RM46 F8C2Z0
    Dihydroxy-acid dehydratase. [EC:]
    2,3-dihydroxy-3-methylbutanoate = 3-methyl-2-oxobutanoate + H(2)O.
      4 A0A0B7L3X5 A5M8H8 C1CH61 D6ZNG7
      Ribulose-phosphate 3-epimerase. [EC:]
      D-ribulose 5-phosphate = D-xylulose 5-phosphate.
      • Also converts D-erythrose 4-phosphate into D-erythrulose 4-phosphate and D-threose 4-phosphate.
      2 A0A0N9Z2B1 A0A128A5E5
      Isoleucine--tRNA ligase. [EC:]
      ATP + L-isoleucine + tRNA(Ile) = AMP + diphosphate + L-isoleucyl- tRNA(Ile).
        1 U2WRV2
        Glucose-6-phosphate isomerase. [EC:]
        D-glucose 6-phosphate = D-fructose 6-phosphate.
        • Also catalyzes the anomerization of D-glucose 6-phosphate.
