YhfX and YggS are single domain proteins related to the N-terminal domains of both synthetic (Alr) and catabolic (DsdX) alanine racemases, which contain the covalently PLP-modified lysine residue N6-(pyridoxal phosphate)lysine; since YhfX and YggS lack the C-terminal Alr/DadX domains containing the L-alanine-specific binding site and proton-accepting active site, it is unlikely that these enzymes have alanine racemase activity. YhfX has a predicted covalently PLP-modified residue N6-(pyridoxal phosphate)lysine.
