Reaction: O-ureido-D-serine + ATP + H2O = D-cycloserine + CO2 + NH3 + ADP + phosphate
Glossary: O-ureido-D-serine = (2R)-2-amino-3-[(carbamoylamino)oxy]propanoate
Other name(s): dcsG (gene name)
Systematic name: O-ureido-D-serine cyclo-ligase (D-cycloserine-forming)
Comments: The enzyme participates in the biosynthetic pathway of D-cycloserine, an antibiotic substance produced by several Streptomyces species.
