Glossary: dTDP-β-L-vancosamine = dTDP-3-amino-2,3,6-trideoxy-3-C-methyl-β-L-lyxo-hexopyranose
Other name(s): devancosaminyl-vancomycin TDP-vancosaminyltransferase; GtfD; dTDP-β-L-vancomycin:desvancosaminyl-vancomycin β-L-vancosaminetransferase; desvancosaminyl-vancomycin vancosaminetransferase
Systematic name: dTDP-β-L-vancomycin:devancosaminyl-vancomycin β-L-vancosaminetransferase
Comments: The enzyme, isolated from the bacterium Amycolatopsis orientalis, catalyses the ultimate step in the biosynthesis of the antibiotic vancomycin.
