ENZYME entry: EC 6.3.2.58

Accepted Name
D-ornithine--citrate ligase.
Reaction catalysed
ATP + D-ornithine + citrate <=> AMP + diphosphate + N(5)-((S)-citryl)-D-ornithine
Comment(s)
  • Requires Mg(2+).
  • The enzyme, characterized from the bacterium Staphylococcus aureus, is involved in the biosynthesis of the siderophore staphyloferrin A.
  • It belongs to a class of siderophore synthases known as type A nonribosomal peptide synthase-independent synthases (NIS).
  • Type A NIS enzymes are responsible for the formation of amide or ester bonds between polyamines or amino alcohols and a prochiral carboxyl group of citrate.
  • The enzyme forms a citrate adenylate intermediate prior to ligation.
