Reaction: dTDP-6-deoxy-β-L-talose + NAD+ = dTDP-4-dehydro-β-L-rhamnose + NADH + H+
Glossary: dTDP-4-dehydro-β-L-rhamnose = dTDP-4-dehydro-6-deoxy-β-L-mannose
dTDP-6-deoxy-β-L-talose = dTDP-β-L-pneumose
Other name(s): tll (gene name)
Systematic name: dTDP-6-deoxy-β-L-talose:NAD+ 4-oxidoreductase
Comments: The enzyme has been characterized from the bacterium Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans, in which it participates in the biosynthesis of the serotype c-specific polysaccharide antigen. Shows no activity with NADP+.
