Accepted name: 2-dehydro-3-deoxy-L-fuconate aldolase
Reaction: 2-dehydro-3-deoxy-L-fuconate = pyruvate + (S)-lactaldehyde
Other name(s): 2-keto-3-deoxy-L-fuconate aldolase; L-2-keto-3-deoxyfuconate aldolase; fucH (gene name)
Systematic name: 2-dehydro-3-deoxy-L-fuconate (S)-lactaldehyde-lyase (pyruvate-forming)
Comments: The enzyme, characterized from the bacteria Veillonella ratti and Campylobacter jejuni, participates in an L-fucose degradation pathway. It also has significant activity with 2-dehydro-3-deoxy-D-pentonate (cf. EC, 2-dehydro-3-deoxy-D-pentonate aldolase).
