Accepted name: isonocardicin synthase
Reaction: S-adenosyl-L-methionine + nocardicin G = S-methyl-5′-thioadenosine + isonocardicin C

Other name(s): nocardicin aminocarboxypropyltransferase; S-adenosyl-L-methionine:nocardicin-E 3-amino-3-carboxypropyltransferase
Systematic name: S-adenosyl-L-methionine:nocardicin-G 3-amino-3-carboxypropyltransferase
Comments: The enzyme, characterized from the bacterium Nocardia uniformis, is involved in the biosynthesis of the β-lactam antibiotic nocardicin A. The enzyme can act on nocardicin E, F, and G, producing isonocardicin A, B, and C, respectively. However, the in vivo substrate is believed to be nocardicin G [3].
