Creuzenet C. Characterization of CJ1293, a new UDP-GlcNAc C6 dehydratase from Campylobacter jejuni. FEBS Lett. 2004;559:136-40 pubmed
..Based on enzymatic data, we propose that CJ1293 catalyzes the first step in the biosynthesis of bacillosamine, a sugar found in C. jejuni's protein glycosylation motifs. ..
