ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
Nocardicin-A epimerase.
Reaction catalysed
  • Isonocardicin C <=> nocardicin C
  • Isonocardicin A <=> nocardicin A
Pyridoxal 5'-phosphate.
  • The enzyme, characterized from the bacterium Nocardia uniformis, is involved in the biosynthesis of the monolactam antibiotic nocardicin A.
  • It catalyzes the epimerization of the amino group at position 9' from (S) configuration to (R).
  • The enzyme can act on both isonocardicin A and isonocardicin C, but the in vivo substrate appears to be the latter.
