Accepted name: 2-dehydro-3-deoxy-D-arabinonate dehydratase
Reaction: 2-dehydro-3-deoxy-D-arabinonate = 2,5-dioxopentanoate + H2O
Systematic name: 2-dehydro-3-deoxy-D-arabinonate hydro-lyase (2,5-dioxopentanoate-forming)
Comments: The enzyme participates in pentose oxidation pathways that convert pentose sugars to the tricarboxylic acid cycle intermediate 2-oxoglutarate.
