Synonyms: D-ornithine 4,5-aminomutase
Species: [Clostridium] sticklandii
Subunit composition of
D-ornithine aminomutase = [OraE]2[OraS]2
D-ornithine aminomutase component E subunit = OraE (summary available)
D-ornithine aminomutase component S subunit = OraS
D-Ornithine 4,5-aminomutase catalyzes the conversion of D-ornithine to D-threo-2,4-diaminopentanoate as part of the pathway of ornithine oxidation. The enzyme contains pyridoxal phosphate and tightly bound cobamide. It is specific for D-ornithine [Somack73, Kenklies99, Dyer68, Dyer70, Jeng74a].
This enzyme was previously reported to be a homodimer [Somack73], but is now believed to be an α2β2 heterotetramer [Chen01b]. The molecular weight of the complex was estimated by gel filtration chromatography (in [Chen01b]).
