IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
EC 1.5.1.24

Names

Accepted name:
N5-(carboxyethyl)ornithine synthase
Other name:
5-N-(L-1-carboxyethyl)-L-ornithine:NADP+ oxidoreductase (L-ornithine-forming)
Systematic name:
N5-(L-1-carboxyethyl)-L-ornithine:NADP+ oxidoreductase (L-ornithine-forming)

Reaction

Comments:

In the reverse direction, L-lysine can act instead of L-ornithine, but more slowly. Acts on the amino group. cf. EC 1.5.1.16 D-lysopine dehydrogenase.
