Accepted name:
2,3,4,5-tetrahydropyridine-2,6-dicarboxylate N-succinyltransferase
Other names:
succinyl-CoA:tetrahydrodipicolinate N-succinyltransferase
tetrahydrodipicolinate N-succinyltransferase
tetrahydrodipicolinate succinyltransferase
tetrahydropicolinate succinylase
succinyl-CoA:2,3,4,5-tetrahydropyridine-2,6-dicarboxylate N-succinyltransferase
Systematic name:
succinyl-CoA:(S)-2,3,4,5-tetrahydropyridine-2,6-dicarboxylate N-succinyltransferase



Involved in the biosynthesis of lysine in bacteria (including cyanobacteria) and higher plants. The 1992 edition of the Enzyme List erroneously gave the name 2,3,4,5-tetrahydropyridine-2-carboxylate N-succinyltransferase to this enzyme.
