ENZYME entry: EC 5.1.1.15

Accepted Name
2-aminohexano-6-lactam racemase.
Alternative Name(s)
2-amino-hexano-6-lactam racemase.
Alpha-amino-epsilon-caprolactam racemase.
Reaction catalysed
(S)-2-aminohexano-6-lactam <=> (R)-2-aminohexano-6-lactam
Cofactor(s)
Pyridoxal 5'-phosphate.
Comment(s)
  • Also interconverts 2-aminopentano-5-lactam (alpha-amino-delta- valerolactam) and 2-amino-4-thiahexano-6-lactam (where S replaces CH(2) of C-4).
  • It does not catalyze the racemisation of alpha-amino acids but has some transaminase activity with them.
