- Tetrahydrodipicolinate N-acetyltransferase
enzymology, a tetrahydrodipicolinate N-acetyltransferase (EC number|126.96.36.199) is an enzymethat catalyzes the chemical reaction
:acetyl-CoA + (S)-2,3,4,5-tetrahydropyridine-2,6-dicarboxylate + H2O CoA + L-2-acetamido-6-oxoheptanedioate
This enzyme belongs to the family of
transferases, specifically those acyltransferases transferring groups other than aminoacyl groups. The systematic name of this enzyme class is acetyl-CoA:(S)-2,3,4,5-tetrahydropyridine-2,6-dicarboxylate N2-acetyltransferase. Other names in common use include tetrahydrodipicolinate acetylase, tetrahydrodipicolinate:acetyl-CoA acetyltransferase, acetyl-CoA:L-2,3,4,5-tetrahydrodipicolinate N2-acetyltransferase, acetyl-CoA:(S)-2,3,4,5-tetrahydropyridine-2,6-dicarboxylate, and 2-N-acetyltransferase. This enzyme participates in lysine biosynthesis.
CAS registry numberfor this enzyme class is CAS registry|83588-91-4."
