|PDB structures||RCSB PDB PDBe PDBsum|
- L-ornithine + NAD(P)H + O2 N(5)-hydroxy-L-ornithine + NAD(P)+ + H2O
This enzyme belongs to the family of oxidoreductases, specifically the monooxygenases. The systematic name of this enzyme class is L-ornithine N5 monooxygenase (flavin-dependent). The enzyme from the pathogenic fungus Aspergillus fumigatus catalyzes a step in the biosynthesis of the siderophores triacetylfusarinine and desferriferricrocin, while the enzyme from the bacterium Kutzneria 744 is involved in the biosynthesis of piperazate, a building block of the kutzneride family of antifungal antibiotics.
