Acting on the CH-OH group of donors;
With NAD+ or NADP+ as acceptor
dTDP-alpha-D-fucopyranose + NAD(P)+ = dTDP-4-dehydro-6-deoxy-alpha-D-glucose + NAD(P)H + H+ [RN:
The enzymes from the Gram-negative bacteria Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans and Escherichia coli O52 are involved in activation of fucose for incorporation into capsular polysaccharide O-antigens [1,3]. The enzyme from the Gram-positive bacterium Anoxybacillus tepidamans (Geobacillus tepidamans) is involved in activation of fucose for incorporation into the organism's S-layer . The enzyme from Escherichia coli O52 has a higher catalytic efficiency with NADH than with NADPH .
