5.1
Gene ontology ID
GO:0016854
Definition
Catalysis of a reaction that alters the configuration of one or more chiral centers in a molecule
Comment
Note that enzymes of class EC:5.1.99.- should also be annotated to this term. Note that 'epimerase' refers to the conversion of an epimer into its diastereoisomer, and 'racemase' refers to the interconversion of the two enantiomers of a chiral compound.
