Accepted name: GDP-L-colitose synthase
Reaction: GDP-β-L-colitose + NAD(P)+ = GDP-4-dehydro-3,6-dideoxy-α-D-mannose + NAD(P)H + H+

Glossary: L-colitose = 3,6-dideoxy-L-xylo-hexopyranose
GDP-4-dehydro-3,6-dideoxy-α-D-mannose = GDP-3,6-dideoxy-α-D-threo-hexopyranos-4-ulose
Other name(s): ColC
Systematic name: GDP-β-L-colitose:NAD(P)+ 4-oxidoreductase (5-epimerizing)
Comments: The enzyme is involved in biosynthesis of L-colitose, a 3,6-dideoxyhexose found in the O-antigen of Gram-negative lipopolysaccharides, where it catalyses the reaction in the reverse direction. The enzyme also performs the NAD(P)H-dependent epimerisation at C-5 of the sugar. The enzyme from Yersinia pseudotuberculosis is Si-specific with respect to NAD(P)H [1].
