Accepted name: UDP-2-acetamido-2-deoxy-ribo-hexuluronate aminotransferase
Reaction: UDP-2-acetamido-3-amino-2,3-dideoxy-α-D-glucuronate + 2-oxoglutarate = UDP-2-acetamido-2-deoxy-α-D-ribo-hex-3-uluronate + L-glutamate

Other name(s): WbpE; WlbC
Systematic name: UDP-2-acetamido-3-amino-2,3-dideoxy-α-D-glucuronate:2-oxoglutarate aminotransferase
Comments: A pyridoxal 5′-phosphate protein. This enzyme participates in the biosynthetic pathway for UDP-α-D-ManNAc3NAcA (UDP-2,3-diacetamido-2,3-dideoxy-α-D-mannuronic acid), an important precursor of B-band lipopolysaccharide. The enzymes from Pseudomonas aeruginosa serotype O5 and Thermus thermophilus form a complex with the previous enzyme in the pathway, EC (UDP-N-acetyl-2-amino-2-deoxyglucuronate oxidase).
