Bull Syntheses of 2-Keto-3-deoxy-D-xylonate and 2-Keto-3-deoxy-L-arabinonate as Stereochemical Probes for Demonstrating the Metabolic Promiscuity of Sulfolobus solfataricus Towards D-Xylose and L-Arabinose Chemistry - A European Journal 19

A promiscuous aldolase: The enantiomers 2-keto-3-deoxy-D-xylonate (D-KDX) and 2-keto-3-deoxy-L-arabinonate (L-KDA) are good substrates for the 2-keto-3-deoxy-D-gluconate aldolase from the archaeon Sulfolobus solfataricus, thus confirming that S. solfataricus employs a metabolically promiscuous pathway to catabolise the C5-sugars D-xylose and L-arabinose (see scheme).
