FUNCTIONCatalyzes the isomerization of L-xylulose-5-phosphate to L- ribulose-5-phosphate. Is involved in the anaerobic L-ascorbate utilization.
CATALYTIC ACTIVITY Reaction=L-ribulose 5-phosphate = L-xylulose 5-phosphate; Xref=Rhea:RHEA:18497, ChEBI:CHEBI:57829, ChEBI:CHEBI:58226; EC=;
PATHWAYCofactor degradation; L-ascorbate degradation; D-xylulose 5- phosphate from L-ascorbate: step 3/4.
INDUCTIONInduced by L-ascorbate. Repressed by UlaR.
SIMILARITYBelongs to the L-ribulose-5-phosphate 3-epimerase family.
