Accepted name: validamine 7-phosphate valienyltransferase
Reaction: GDP-valienol + validamine 7-phosphate = validoxylamine A 7′-phosphate + GDP
Glossary: valienol = (1S,2S,3S,4R)-5-(hydroxymethyl)cyclohex-5-ene-1,2,3,4-tetrol
validamine = (1R,2S,3S,4S,6R)-4-amino-6-(hydroxymethyl)cyclohexane-1,2,3-triol
Other name(s): vldE (gene name); valL (gene name)
Systematic name: GDP-valienol:validamine 7-phosphate valienyltransferase
Comments: The enzyme, characterized from several Streptomyces strains, is involved in the biosynthesis of the antifungal agent validamycin A.
