In the field of enzymology, a CDP-glucose 4,6-dehydratase is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction
Hence, this enzyme has one substrate, CDP-glucose, and two products, CDP-4-dehydro-6-deoxy-D-glucose and H2O.
This enzyme belongs to the family of lyases, specifically the hydro-lyases, which cleave carbon-oxygen bonds. This enzyme participates in starch and sucrose metabolism. It employs one cofactor, NAD+.
