Family

Ectoine synthase (IPR010462)

Short name: Ectoine_synth

Family relationships

None.

Description

This family consists of several bacterial ectoine synthase proteins. The ectABC genes encode the diaminobutyric acid acetyltransferase (EctA), the diaminobutyric acid aminotransferase (EctB), and the ectoine synthase (EctC). Together these proteins constitute the ectoine biosynthetic pathway [PMID: 11823218].
