Comments [?]

Function Catalyzes the isomerization of L-xylulose-5-phosphate to L-ribulose-5-phosphate. Is involved in the anaerobic L-ascorbate utilization.
Catalytic activity RHEA:18497: L-ribulose 5-phosphate = L-xylulose 5-phosphate
Pathway Cofactor degradation; L-ascorbate degradation; D-xylulose 5-phosphate from L-ascorbate: step 3/4.
Induction Induced by L-ascorbate. Repressed by UlaR.
Similarity Belongs to the L-ribulose-5-phosphate 3-epimerase family.
