Description Ornithine decarboxylase (family 2)
Notes This family includes only eubacterial proteins. These are large, multidomain enzymes, whose key domain shows a fold-type I structure.
The family is well-defined, but sequences are related to lysine decarboxylases (families and and arginine decarboxylases (family
