IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
EC 2.1.3.3

Names

Accepted name:
ornithine carbamoyltransferase
Other names:
L-ornithine carbamoyltransferase
L-ornithine carbamyltransferase
L-ornithine transcarbamylase
OTC
carbamylphosphate-ornithine transcarbamylase
citrulline phosphorylase
ornithine carbamyltransferase
ornithine transcarbamylase
Systematic name:
carbamoyl-phosphate:L-ornithine carbamoyltransferase

Reaction

Comments:

The plant enzyme also catalyses the reactions of EC 2.1.3.6 putrescine carbamoyltransferase, EC 2.7.2.2 carbamate kinase and EC 3.5.3.12 agmatine deiminase, thus acting as putrescine synthase, converting agmatine and ornithine into putrescine and citrulline, respectively.
