ENZYME entry: EC 6.3.2.39

Accepted Name
Aerobactin synthase.
Reaction catalysed
2 ATP + N(2)-citryl-N(6)-acetyl-N(6)-hydroxy-L-lysine + N(6)-acetyl-N(6)-hydroxy-L-lysine + H(2)O <=> 2 ADP + 2 phosphate + aerobactin
Cofactor(s)
Mg(2+).
Comment(s)
  • Aerobactin is one of a group of high-affinity iron chelators known as siderophores and is produced under conditions of iron deprivation.
  • It is a dihydroxamate comprising two molecules of N(6)-acetyl-N(6)- hydroxy-L-lysine and one molecule of citric acid.
  • This enzyme catalyzes the second of two synthase reactions to link N(6)-acetyl-N(6)-hydroxy-L-lysine and citrate.
  • Formerly EC 6.3.2.27.
