Accepted name: UDP-N-acetyl-3-dehydro-α-D-glucosamine 3-aminotranferase
Reaction: UDP-2-acetamido-3-amino-2,3-dideoxy-α-D-glucopyranose + 2-oxoglutarate = UDP-N-acetyl-3-dehydro-α-D-glucosamine + L-glutamate
Other name(s): gnnB (gene name)
Systematic name: UDP-2-acetamido-3-amino-2,3-dideoxy-α-D-glucopyranose:2-oxoglutarate aminotransferase
Comments: This bacterial enzyme participates, together with EC, UDP-N-acetylglucosamine 3-dehydrogenase, in the synthesis of 2,3-diamino-2,3-dideoxy-D-glucopyranose, a component of lipid A in some species.
