Accepted name: L-ornithine Nα-acyltransferase
Reaction: L-ornithine + a (3R)-3-hydroxyacyl-[acyl-carrier protein] = a lyso-ornithine lipid + a holo-[acyl-carrier protein]
Glossary: a lyso-ornithine lipid = an Nα-[(3R)-hydroxy-acyl]-L-ornithine
Other name(s): olsB (gene name)
Systematic name: L-ornithine Nα-(3R)-3-hydroxy-acyltransferase
Comments: The enzyme, found in bacteria, catalyses the first step in the biosynthesis of ornithine lipids.
