Comments [?]

Function Involved in the degradation of L-arabinose. Catalyzes the interconversion of L-ribulose 5-phosphate (LRu5P) and D-xylulose 5-phosphate (D-Xu5P) via a retroaldol/aldol mechanism (carbon-carbon bond cleavage analogous to a class II aldolase reaction).
Catalytic activity RHEA:22368: L-ribulose 5-phosphate = D-xylulose 5-phosphate
Cofactor Zn(2+)
Note: Binds 1 zinc ion per subunit.
Pathway Carbohydrate degradation; L-arabinose degradation via L-ribulose; D-xylulose 5-phosphate from L-arabinose (bacterial route): step 3/3.
Subunit Homotetramer.
Similarity Belongs to the aldolase class II family. AraD/FucA subfamily.
