Alternative Name(s)
(4-aminobutyl)lysine synthase.
[eIF-5A]-deoxyhypusine synthase.
Spermidine dehydrogenase.
Reaction catalysed

Cofactor(s)
NAD(+).
Comment(s)
  • The eukaryotic initiation factor eIF5A contains a hypusine residue that is essential for activity.
  • Catalyzes the first reaction of hypusine formation from one specific lysine residue of the eIF5A precursor.
  • The reaction occurs in four steps: NAD(+)-dependent dehydrogenation of spermidine (1a), formation of an enzyme-imine intermediate by transfer of the 4-aminobutylidene group from dehydrospermidine to the active site lysine residue (1b), transfer of the same 4-aminobutylidene group from the enzyme intermediate to the e1F5A precursor (1c), reduction of the e1F5A-imine intermediate to form a deoxyhypusine residue (1d).
  • Hence the overall reaction is transfer of a 4-aminobutyl group.
  • For the plant enzyme, homospermidine can substitute for spermidine and putrescine can substitute for the lysine residue of the eIF5A precursor.
  • Hypusine is formed from deoxyhypusine by the action of EC 1.14.99.29.
  • Formerly EC 1.1.1.249.
