IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
EC 2.1.3.9

Names

Accepted name:
N-acetylornithine carbamoyltransferase
Other names:
acetylornithine transcarbamylase
N-acetylornithine transcarbamylase
AOTC
carbamoyl-phosphate:2-N-acetyl-L-ornithine carbamoyltransferase
Systematic name:
carbamoyl-phosphate:N2-acetyl-L-ornithine carbamoyltransferase

Reaction

Comments:

Differs from EC 2.1.3.3, ornithine carbamoyltransferase. This enzyme replaces EC 2.1.3.3 in the canonic arginine biosynthetic pathway of several Eubacteria and has no catalytic activity with L-ornithine as substrate.
