ENZYME entry: EC 4.1.1.86

Accepted Name
Diaminobutyrate decarboxylase.
Alternative Name(s)
DABA DC.
L-2,4-diaminobutanoate carboxy-lyase.
L-2,4-diaminobutyrate decarboxylase.
Reaction catalysed
L-2,4-diaminobutanoate <=> propane-1,3-diamine + CO(2)
Cofactor(s)
Divalent cation; Pyridoxal 5'-phosphate.
Comment(s)
  • N(4)-acetyl-L-2,4-diaminobutanoate, 2,3-diaminopropanoate, ornithine and lysine are not substrates.
  • In Acinetobacter baumannii it is cotranscribed with the neighboring dat gene that encodes EC 2.6.1.76, which can supply the substrate for the decarboxylase.
