Mannitol dehydrogenases signature
The following dehydrogenases have been shown [
1] to be evolutionary related:
Mannitol-1-phosphate 5-dehydrogenase (EC
188.8.131.52) (gene mtlD), which
catalyzes the NAD-dependent reduction of mannitol 1-phosphate into fructose
Mannitol 2-dehydrogenase (EC
184.108.40.206) (gene mtlK), which catalyzes the
NAD-dependent reduction of mannitol into fructose.
Mannonate oxidoreductase (EC
220.127.116.11) (fructuronate reductase) (gene
uxuB), which catalyzes the NAD-dependent reduction of fructuronate into
Escherichia coli hypothetical protein ydfI.
Escherichia coli hypothetical protein yeiQ.
Yeast hypothetical protein YEL070w.
As a signature pattern, we selected a conserved region located in the central
section of these enzymes.
