EC 4.3.2.6     
Accepted name: γ-L-glutamyl-butirosin B γ-glutamyl cyclotransferase
Reaction: γ-L-glutamyl-butirosin B = butirosin B + 5-oxo-L-proline
Glossary: γ-L-glutamyl-butirosin B = (1R,2R,3S,4R,6S)-6-amino-4-{[(2R)-4-(γ-L-glutamylamino)-2-hydroxybutanoyl]amino}-3-hydroxy-2-(α-D-ribofuranosyloxy)cyclohexyl
Other name(s): btrG (gene name); γ-L-glutamyl-butirosin B γ-glutamyl cyclotransferase (5-oxoproline producing)
Systematic name: γ-L-glutamyl-butirosin B γ-glutamyl cyclotransferase (5-oxo-L-proline producing)
Comments: The enzyme catalyses the last step in the biosynthesis of the aminoglycoside antibiotic butirosin B. The enzyme acts as a cyclotransferase, cleaving the amide bond via transamidation using the α-amine of the terminal γ-L-glutamate of the side chain, releasing it as the cyclic 5-oxo-L-proline.
