N -citryl- 2 N -acetyl- 6 N -hydroxy- 6 L-lysine: N -acetyl- 6 N -hydroxy- 6 L-lysine ligase (ADP-forming)
Comments: Requires Mg
. Aerobactin is one of a group of high-affinity iron chelators known as siderophores and is produced under conditions of iron deprivation . It is a dihydroxamate comprising two molecules of 2+ N -acetyl- 6 N -hydroxy- 6 L-lysine and one molecule of citric acid. This enzyme catalyses the second of two synthase reactions to link N -acetyl- 6 N -hydroxy- 6 L-lysine and citrate [3,4,5].
