Accepted name: 8-amino-3,8-dideoxy-manno-octulosonate cytidylyltransferase
Reaction: CTP + 8-amino-3,8-dideoxy-α-D-manno-octulosonate = diphosphate + CMP-8-amino-3,8-dideoxy-α-D-manno-octulosonate
Other name(s): kdsB (gene name, ambiguous)
Systematic name: CTP:8-amino-3,8-dideoxy-α-D-manno-octulosonate cytidylyltransferase
Comments: The enzyme, characterized from the bacterium Shewanella oneidensis MR-1, acts on the 8-aminated from of 3-deoxy-α-D-manno-octulosonate (Kdo). cf. EC, 3-deoxy-manno-octulosonate cytidylyltransferase.
