None.

Description

Carboxynorspermidine synthase, mediates the nicotinamide-nucleotide-linked reduction of the Schiff base H2N(CH2)3N = CHCH2CH(NH2)COOH. This is formed from L-aspartic beta-semialdehyde (ASA) and 1,3-diaminopropane (DAP) and is reduced to carboxynorspermidine [H2N(CH2)3NH(CH2)2CH(NH2)COOH], an intermediate in the novel pathway for norspermidine biosynthesis shown in Vibrio alginolyticus [PMID: 19196710].
