- carbamoyl phosphate + putrescine phosphate + N-carbamoylputrescine
This enzyme belongs to the family of transferases that transfer one-carbon groups, specifically the carboxy- and carbamoyltransferases. The systematic name of this enzyme class is carbamoyl-phosphate:putrescine carbamoyltransferase. Other names in common use include PTCase, putrescine synthase, and putrescine transcarbamylase.
