InterPro : IPR001174

Name  Galactokinase/homoserine kinase Short Name  Galkinase
Type  Family Description  The lincomycin (LM)-production gene cluster of an over-producing strain ofStreptomyces lincolnensishas been analysed []. The lmb/lmr gene cluster contains 27 open reading frames with putative biosynthetic orregulatory functions (lmb genes) and three resistance (lmr) genes []. Only a minority of the putative Lmb proteins belong to known proteinfamilies: these include members of the gamma-glutamyl transferases (LmbA);amino acid acylases (LmbC); aromatic amino acid aminotransferases (LmbF);imidazoleglycerolphosphate dehydratases (LmbK); dTDP-glucose synthases(LmbO); dTDP-glucose 4,6-dehydratases (LmbM); and (NDP-) ketohexose (or ketocyclitol) aminotransferases (LmbS) []. LmbP seems to show some similarity to a family of enzymes that share anN-terminal Gly/Ser-rich putative ATP-binding region: these include galacto-kinase (), homoserine kinase (), mevalonate kinase () and phosphomevalonate kinase[]. Sequence v031 from Mycobacterium tuberculosis[]is also a homologue.
