Accepted name: thermospermine synthase
Reaction: S-adenosyl 3-(methylsulfanyl)propylamine + spermidine = S-methyl-5′-thioadenosine + thermospermine + H+
Glossary: thermospermine = N1-[3-(3-aminopropylamino)propyl]butane-1,4-diamine
S-adenosyl 3-(methylsulfanyl)propylamine = (3-aminopropyl){[(2S,3S,4R,5R)-5-(6-amino-9H-purin-9-yl)-3,4-dihydroxytetrahydrofuran-2-yl]methyl}methylsulfonium
Other name(s): TSPMS; ACL5; SAC51; S-adenosyl 3-(methylthio)propylamine:spermidine 3-aminopropyltransferase (thermospermine synthesizing)
Systematic name: S-adenosyl 3-(methylsulfanyl)propylamine:spermidine 3-aminopropyltransferase (thermospermine-forming)
Comments: This plant enzyme is crucial for the proper functioning of xylem vessel elements in the vascular tissues of plants [3].
