Family

Trimethyllysine dioxygenase (IPR012776)

Short name: Trimethyllysine_dOase

Family relationships

None.

Description

Members of this family with known function act as trimethyllysine dioxygenase, an enzyme in the pathway for carnitine biosynthesis from lysine. This enzyme is homologous to gamma-butyrobetaine,2-oxoglutarate dioxygenase, which catalyzes the last step in carnitine biosynthesis. Members of this family appear to be eukaryotic only.
