Description D-ornithine/D-lysine decarboxylase
Alternative names STM2360 (gene name);
Catalyzed reaction D-ornithine = putrescine + CO(2)
D-lysine = cadaverine + CO(2).
Cofactor Pyridoxal-phosphate.
Comments Glossary: cadaverine = pentane-1,5-diamine putrescine = butane-1,4-diamine The enzyme, characterized from the bacterium Salmonella typhimurium LT2, is specific for D-ornithine and D-lysine. Requires pyridoxal 5'-phosphate.
The enzyme from S. typhimurium reacts more efficiently with D-ornithine.
