Characteristics of the protein coding sequence

Dihydrodipicolinate synthase
Biological function
Dihydropicolinate synthase is the key enzyme in lysine biosynthesis via the diaminopimelate pathway of prokaryotes, some phycomycetes and higher plants. The enzyme catalyses the condensation of L-aspartate-beta- semialdehyde and pyruvate to dihydropicolinic acid via a ping-pong mechanism in which pyruvate binds to the enzyme by forming a Schiff base with a lysine residue.
