EC 6.1.2.2

Accepted name: nebramycin 5' synthase

Reaction: (1) tobramycin + carbamoyl phosphate + ATP + H2O = nebramycin 5' + AMP + diphosphate + phosphate (overall reaction)
(1a) carbamoyl phosphate + ATP + H2O = diphosphate + O-carbamoyladenylate + phosphate
(1b) O-carbamoyladenylate + tobramycin = AMP + nebramycin 5'
(2) kanamycin A + carbamoyl phosphate + ATP + H2O = 6''-O-carbamoylkanamycin A + AMP + diphosphate + phosphate (overall reaction)
(2a) carbamoyl phosphate + ATP + H2O = diphosphate + O-carbamoyladenylate + phosphate
(2b) O-carbamoyladenylate + kanamycin A = AMP + 6''-O-carbamoylkanamycin A

Glossary: tobramycin = (1S,2S,3R,4S,6R)-4,6-diamino-3-(2,6-diamino-2,3,6-trideoxy-α-D-ribo-hexopyranosyloxy)-2-hydroxycyclohexyl 3-amino-3-deoxy-α-D-glucopyranoside
nebramycin 5' = (1S,2S,3R,4S,6R)-4,6-diamino-3-[(2,6-diamino-2,3,6-trideoxy-α-D-ribo-hexopyranosyl)oxy]-2-hydroxycyclohexyl 3-amino-6-O-carbamoyl-3-deoxy-α-D-glucopyranoside
kanamycin A = (1S,2R,3R,4S,6R)-4,6-diamino-3-(6-amino-6-deoxy--D-glucopyranosyloxy)-2-hydroxycyclohexyl 3-amino-3-deoxy--D-glucopyranoside
6''-O-carbamoylkanamycin A = (1S,2R,3R,4S,6R)-4,6-diamino-3-[(6-amino-6-deoxy-α-D-glucopyranosyl)oxy]-2-hydroxycyclohexyl 3-amino-6-O-carbamoyl-3-deoxy-α-D-glucopyranoside

Other name(s): tobramycin carbamoyltransferase; TobZ

Systematic name: tobramycin:carbamoyl phosphate ligase (AMP,phosphate-forming)

Comments: Requires Fe(III). The enzyme from the bacterium Streptoalloteichus tenebrarius catalyses the activation of carbamoyl phosphate to O-carbamoyladenylate and the subsequent carbamoylation of kanamycin and tobramycin.
