Xylose isomerase (EC, also known D-xylose isomerase, is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction that converts D-xylose into D-xylulose. It is used industrially to process glucose to fructose in order to make high-fructose corn syrup. The JGI database predicts that this enzyme is present in the Halorhabdus utahensis genome.
