B6db families: c
Description Lysine racemase (family c)
Notes Very small family, based on the functionally validated enzyme from Thermotoga maritima. Sequences are quite dissimilar from those in familes and, but very similar to ornithine racemases (family Indeed, the enzyme from Thermotoga also shows a very high activity towards L- and D-ornithine.
