EC - N1-aminopropylagmatine synthase

  IntEnz view ENZYME view


DE   N(1)-aminopropylagmatine synthase.
AN   Agmatine aminopropyltransferase.
AN   Agmatine/cadaverine aminopropyl transferase.
AN   Triamine/agmatine aminopropyltransferase.
CA   S-adenosylmethioninamine + agmatine = S-methyl-5'-thioadenosine + N(1)-
CA   (3-aminopropyl)agmatine.
CC   -!- The enzyme is involved in the biosynthesis of spermidine from
CC       agmatine in some archaea and bacteria.
CC   -!- The enzyme from the Gram-negative bacterium Thermus thermophilus
CC       accepts agmatine, spermidine and norspermidine with similar catalytic
CC       efficiency.
CC   -!- The enzymes from the archaea Pyrococcus furiosus and Thermococcus
CC       kodakarensis prefer agmatine, but can utilize cadaverine, putrescine
CC       and propane-1,3-diamine with much lower catalytic efficiency.
