Description Arginine decarboxylase (family 1)
Notes This family includes plant and proteobacterial (biosynthetic) arginine decarboxylases, which are fold-type III enzymes.
In contrast, the Escherichia coli biodegradative arginine decarboxylase and other bacterial arginine decarboxylases are fold-type I enzymes and have been grouped in family
