Description

This entry represents a group of putative 8-amino-7-oxononanoate synthases (AONS) mainly from Firmicutes and Archaea. They are related to the 8-amino-7-oxononanoate synthases from Proteobacteria (IPR004723), which is a pyridoxal 5'-phosphate-dependent enzyme that catalyses the decarboxylative condensation of L-alanine with pimeloyl-CoA to form 8(S)-amino-7-oxononanoate [PMID: 10642176].
