IUBMB Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name: D-lysopine dehydrogenase

Reaction: N2-(D-1-carboxyethyl)-L-lysine + NADP+ + H2O = L-lysine + pyruvate + NADPH + H+

Other name(s): D-lysopine synthase; lysopine dehydrogenase; D(+)-lysopine dehydrogenase

Systematic name: N2-(D-1-carboxyethyl)-L-lysine:NADP+ oxidoreductase (L-lysine-forming)

Comments: In the reverse reaction, a number of L-amino acids can act instead of L-lysine, and 2-oxobutanoate and, to a lesser extent, glyoxylate can act instead of pyruvate.
