Accepted name: [amino group carrier protein]-lysine hydrolase
Reaction: [amino group carrier protein]-C-terminal-γ-(L-lysyl)-L-glutamate + H2O = [amino group carrier protein]-C-terminal-L-glutamate + L-lysine
Other name(s): lysK (gene name)
Systematic name: [amino group carrier protein]-C-terminal-γ-L-lysyl-L-glutamate amidohydrolase
Comments: The enzyme participates in an L-lysine biosynthetic pathways in certain species of archaea and bacteria. In some organisms the enzyme also catalyses the activity of EC, [amino group carrier protein]-ornithine hydrolase.
