ENZYME entry: EC 1.4.1.18

Accepted Name
Lysine 6-dehydrogenase.
Alternative Name(s)
L-lysine 6-dehydrogenase.
L-lysine epsilon-dehydrogenase.
LysDH.
Reaction catalysed
L-lysine + NAD(+) <=> (S)-2,3,4,5-tetrahydropyridine-2-carboxylate + NADH + NH(3)
Comment(s)
  • Highly specific for L-lysine as substrate, although (S)- (2-aminoethyl)-L-cysteine can act as a substrate, but more slowly.
  • While the enzyme from Agrobacterium tumefaciens can use only NAD(+), that from the thermophilic bacterium Geobacillus stearothermophilus can also use NADP(+), but more slowly.
