Accepted name: carbapenam-3-carboxylate synthase
Reaction: ATP + (2S,5S)-5-carboxymethylproline = AMP + diphosphate + (3S,5S)-carbapenam 3-carboxylate
Other name(s): CarA (ambiguous); CPS (ambiguous); carbapenam-3-carboxylate ligase; 6-methyl-(2S,5S)-5-carboxymethylproline cyclo-ligase (AMP-forming)
Systematic name: (2S,5S)-5-carboxymethylproline cyclo-ligase (AMP-forming)
Comments: The enzyme is involved in the biosynthesis of the carbapenem β-lactam antibiotic (5R)-carbapen-2-em-3-carboxylate in the bacterium Pectobacterium carotovorum.
