Comments [?]

Function Involved in the degradation of L-fucose and D-arabinose. Catalyzes the reversible cleavage of L-fuculose 1-phosphate (Fuc1P) to yield dihydroxyacetone phosphate (DHAP) and L-lactaldehyde.
Catalytic activity RHEA:12933: L-fuculose 1-phosphate = (S)-lactaldehyde + dihydroxyacetone phosphate
EC 4.1.2.17
Cofactor Zn(2+)
Note: Binds 1 zinc ion per subunit.
Pathway Carbohydrate degradation; L-fucose degradation; L-lactaldehyde and glycerone phosphate from L-fucose: step 3/3.
Subunit Homotetramer.
Similarity Belongs to the aldolase class II family. AraD/FucA subfamily.
