Accepted name: (carboxyethyl)arginine β-lactam-synthase
Reaction: ATP + L-N2-(2-carboxyethyl)arginine = AMP + diphosphate + deoxyamidinoproclavaminate

Other name(s): L-2-N-(2-carboxyethyl)arginine cyclo-ligase (AMP-forming)
Systematic name: L-N2-(2-carboxyethyl)arginine cyclo-ligase (AMP-forming)
Comments: Forms part of the pathway for the biosythesis of the β-lactamase inhibitor clavulanate in Streptomyces clavuligerus. It has been proposed [3] that L-N2-(2-carboxyethyl)arginine is first converted into an acyl-AMP by reaction with ATP and loss of diphosphate, and that the β-lactam ring is then formed by the intramolecular attack of the β-nitrogen on the activated carboxy group.
