NameGDP-L-fucose biosynthesis from GDP-4-keto-6-deoxy-D-mannose
DescriptionL-fucose is a component of the E. coli O157 antigen, among other polysaccharides. The starting material for this one step reaction is variously known as GDP-4-dehydro-6-deoxy-D-mannose (or ...-D-talose), and GDP-4-dehydro-D-rhamnose. The former is most often used with repsect to this pathway since it is generally derived from mannose.
