Summary
AraD is a masked class II aldolase. [More information is available at EcoGene: EG10055]. L-ribulose 5-phosphate 4-epimerase catalyzes the third step in the pathway for degradation of L-arabinose, the epimerization at the C4 carbon to form D-xylulose-5-phosphate, which enters the |FRAME: [More information is available at EcoCyc: EG10055].
