Family

Pyruvoyl-dependent arginine decarboxylase (IPR002724)

Short name: Pyruvoyl-dep_arg_deCO2ase

Family relationships

None.

Description

Arginine decarboxylase (EC:4.1.1.19) catalyses the interconversion of arginine and agmatine plus carbon dioxide [PMID: 12623016]. It requires a pyruvoyl group for its activity. Archaeoglobus fulgidus contains three copies of this 80-residue domain, all of which are very closely related.
