Amidinotransferase (IPR003198)

Short name: Amidino_trans

Family relationships


This family contains glycine and inosamine amidinotransferases, enzymes which are involved in creatine and streptomycin biosynthesis respectively. This family also includes arginine deiminases, which catalyse the reversible reaction: arginine + H2O = citrulline + NH3

The Streptococcus anti-tumour glycoprotein is also found in this family [PMID: 9218780].
