EC 2.5.1.108     
Accepted name: 2-(3-amino-3-carboxypropyl)histidine synthase
Reaction: S-adenosyl-L-methionine + L-histidine-[translation elongation factor 2] = S-methyl-5′-thioadenosine + 2-[(3S)-3-amino-3-carboxypropyl]-L-histidine-[translation elongation factor 2]

Other name(s): Dph2
Systematic name: S-adenosyl-L-methionine:L-histidine-[translation elongation factor 2] 2-[(3S)-3-amino-3-carboxypropyl]transferase
Comments: A [4Fe-4S] enzyme that modifies a histidine residue of the translation elongation factor 2 (EF2) via a 3-amino-3-carboxypropyl radical. The enzyme is present in archae and eukaryotes but not in eubacteria. The enzyme is a member of the ’AdoMet radical’ (radical SAM) family and generates the 3-amino-3-carboxypropyl radical by an uncanonical clevage of S-adenosyl-L-methionine. The relevant histidine of EF2 is His715 in mammals, His699 in yeast and His600 in Pyrococcus horikoshii. Part of diphthamide biosynthesis.
