ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
Methylornithine synthase.
Reaction catalysed
L-lysine <=> (3R)-3-methyl-D-ornithine
  • The enzyme is a member of the superfamily of S-adenosyl-L-methionine- dependent radical (radical AdoMet) enzymes.
  • Binds a [4Fe-4S] cluster that is coordinated by 3 cysteines and an exchangeable S-adenosyl-L-methionine molecule.
  • The reaction is part of the biosynthesis pathway of pyrrolysine, a naturally occurring amino acid found in some archaeal methyltransferases.
