ENZYME entry: EC 6.2.1.63

Accepted Name
L-arginine--[L-arginyl-carrier protein] ligase.
Reaction catalysed
ATP + L-arginine + holo-[L-arginyl-carrier protein] <=> AMP + diphosphate + L-arginyl-[L-arginyl-carrier protein]
Comment(s)
  • The adenylation domain of the enzyme catalyzes the activation of L-arginine to (L-arginyl)adenylate, followed by the transfer of the activated compound to the free thiol of a phosphopantetheine arm of a peptidyl-carrier protein domain.
  • The peptidyl-carrier protein domain may be part of the same protein, or of a different protein.
  • This activity is often found as part of a larger non-ribosomal peptide synthase.
