Homologous Superfamily

Orn/Lys/Arg decarboxylase, C-terminal domain superfamily (IPR036633)

Short name: Prn/Lys/Arg_de-COase_C_sf

Overlapping entries


Pyridoxal-dependent decarboxylases are bacterial proteins acting on ornithine, lysine, arginine and related substrates [PMID: 8181483]. One of the regions of sequence similarity contains a conserved lysine residue, which is the site of attachment of the pyridoxal-phosphate group. Ornithine decarboxylase is a dodecamer composed of six homodimers and catalyzes the decarboxylation of tryptophan. Arginine decarboxylase catalyzes the decarboxylation of arginine and lysine decarboxylase catalyzes the decarboxylation of lysine. Members of this superfamily are widely found in all three forms of life [PMID: 8181483,PMID: 7663340,PMID: 9405048,PMID: 9063963,PMID: 8112347,PMID: 7748903,PMID: 10586514,PMID: 17504214,PMID: 17109392,PMID: 10223296,PMID: 9914259,PMID: 10800595,PMID: 11933250,PMID: 10673430].
