Glossary: 3-amino-2,3-dideoxy-scyllo-inosose = (2R,3S,4R,5S)-5-amino-2,3,4-trihydroxycyclohexan-1-one

Systematic name: L-glutamine:5-amino-2,3,4-trihydroxycyclohexanone aminotransferase

Comments: Involved in the biosynthetic pathways of several clinically important aminocyclitol antibiotics, including kanamycin, butirosin, neomycin and ribostamycin. Also catalyses EC 2.6.1.100, L-glutamine:2-deoxy-scyllo-inosose aminotransferase.
