In enzymology, a dTDP-4-dehydrorhamnose 3,5-epimerase (EC 5.1.3.13) is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction

dTDP-4-dehydro-6-deoxy-D-glucose ${\displaystyle \rightleftharpoons }$ dTDP-4-dehydro-6-deoxy-L-mannose

Hence, this enzyme has one substrate, dTDP-4-dehydro-6-deoxy-D-glucose, and one product, dTDP-4-dehydro-6-deoxy-L-mannose.

This enzyme belongs to the family of isomerases, specifically those racemases and epimerases acting on carbohydrates and derivatives. The systematic name of this enzyme class is dTDP-4-dehydro-6-deoxy-D-glucose 3,5-epimerase. Other names in common use include dTDP-L-rhamnose synthetase, dTDP-L-rhamnose synthetase, thymidine diphospho-4-ketorhamnose 3,5-epimerase, TDP-4-ketorhamnose 3,5-epimerase, dTDP-4-dehydro-6-deoxy-D-glucose 3,5-epimerase, and TDP-4-keto-L-rhamnose-3,5-epimerase. This enzyme participates in 3 metabolic pathways: nucleotide sugars metabolism, streptomycin biosynthesis, and polyketide sugar unit biosynthesis.

## Structural studies

The crystal structure of RmlC from Methanobacterium thermoautotrophicum was determined in the presence and absence of a substrate analogue. RmlC is a homodimer comprising a central jelly roll motif, which extends in two directions into longer beta-sheets. Binding of dTDP is stabilised by ionic interactions to the phosphate group and by a combination of ionic and hydrophobic interactions with the base. The active site, which is located in the centre of the jelly roll, is formed by residues that are conserved in all known RmlC sequence homologues. The active site is lined with a number of charged residues and a number of residues with hydrogen-bonding potentials, which together comprise a potential network for substrate binding and catalysis. The active site is also lined with aromatic residues which provide favourable environments for the base moiety of dTDP and potentially for the sugar moiety of the substrate.[1]

As of late 2007, 14 structures have been solved for this class of enzymes, with PDB accession codes 1DZR, 1DZT, 1EP0, 1EPZ, 1NXM, 1NYW, 1NZC, 1PM7, 1RTV, 1UPI, 1WLT, 2B9U, 2IXC, and 2IXL.

Deoxythymidine diphosphate (dTDP)-4-keto-6-deoxy-d-hexulose 3, 5-epimerase (RmlC, EC) is involved in the biosynthesis of dTDP-l-rhamnose, which is an essential component of the bacterial cell wall, converting dTDP-4-keto-6-deoxy-D-glucose to dTDP-4-keto-L-rhamnose.

# Pfam Clan

This family is a member of clan Cupin (CL0029), which has the following description:

This clan represents the conserved barrel domain of the 'cupin' superfamily [1] ('cupa' is the Latin term for a small barrel). The cupin fold is found in a wide variety of enzymes, but notably contains the non-enzymatic seed storage proteins also.

The clan contains the following 61 members:

# Alignments

We store a range of different sequence alignments for families. As well as the seed alignment from which the family is built, we provide the full alignment, generated by searching the sequence database (reference proteomes) using the family HMM. We also generate alignments using four representative proteomes (RP) sets, the UniProtKB sequence database, the NCBI sequence database, and our metagenomics sequence database. More...

## View options

We make a range of alignments for each Pfam-A family. You can see a description of each above. You can view these alignments in various ways but please note that some types of alignment are never generated while others may not be available for all families, most commonly because the alignments are too large to handle.
