Description Ornithine decarboxylase paralogue
Alternative names ODCp;
Catalyzed reaction None - This is a nonenzymatic homologue of ornithine decarboxylase.
Comments These metazoan proteins belonging to the fold-type III group were once attributed an arginine decarboxylase function. However, subsequent studies proved that they are not catalytic, but rather regulatory proteins.
