Accepted name: deoxyhypusine monooxygenase
Reaction: [eIF5A]-deoxyhypusine + reduced acceptor + O2 = [eIF5A]-hypusine + acceptor + H2O
Glossary: deoxyhypusine = N6-(4-aminobutyl)-L-lysine
hypusine = N6-[(R)-4-amino-2-hydroxybutyl]-L-lysine
Other name(s): deoxyhypusine hydroxylase; deoxyhypusine dioxygenase
Systematic name: deoxyhypusine,hydrogen-donor:oxygen oxidoreductase (2-hydroxylating)
Comments: The enzyme catalyses the final step in the formation of the amino acid hypusine in the eukaryotic initiation factor 5A.
