Accepted name: L-glutamyl-[BtrI acyl-carrier protein] decarboxylase
Reaction: L-glutamyl-[BtrI acyl-carrier protein] = 4-amino butanoyl-[BtrI acyl-carrier protein] + CO2
Other name(s): btrK (gene name)
Systematic name: L-glutamyl-[BtrI acyl-carrier protein] carboxy-lyase
Comments: Binds pyridoxal 5′-phosphate. Catalyses a step in the biosynthesis of the side chain of the aminoglycoside antibiotics of the butirosin family. Has very low activity with substrates not bound to an acyl-carrier protein.
