ENZYME entry: EC 6.3.2.59

Accepted Name
3-methyl-D-ornithine--L-lysine ligase.
Alternative Name(s)
3-methylornithine--L-lysine ligase.
N(6)-[(2R,3R)-3-methylornithyl]-L-lysine synthase.
Reaction catalysed
(3R)-3-methyl-D-ornithine + ATP + L-lysine <=> (3R)-3-methyl-D-ornithyl-N(6)-L-lysine + ADP + H(+) + phosphate
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme participates in the biosynthesis of L-pyrrolysine, a naturally occurring, genetically coded amino acid found in some methanogenic archaea and a few bacterial species.
  • L-pyrrolysine is present in several methyltransferases that are involved in methyl transfer from methylated amine compounds to coenzyme M.
