ENZYME entry: EC 2.5.1.44

Accepted Name
Homospermidine synthase.
Reaction catalysed
  • 2 putrescine <=> sym-homospermidine + NH(3) + H(+)
  • Putrescine + spermidine <=> sym-homospermidine + propane-1,3-diamine
Cofactor(s)
NAD(+).
Comment(s)
  • The reaction of this enzyme occurs in three steps, with some of the intermediates presumably remaining enzyme-bound: NAD(+)-dependent dehydrogenation of putrescine, transfer of the 4-aminobutylidene group from dehydroputrescine to a second molecule of putrescine and reduction of the imine intermediate to form homospermidine.
  • Hence the overall reaction is transfer of a 4-aminobutyl group.
  • Differs from EC 2.5.1.45, which cannot use putrescine as donor of the aminobutyl group.
