Nocardicin-A epimerase

Nocardicin-A epimerase

In enzymology, a nocardicin-A epimerase is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction

isonocardicin A rightleftharpoons nocardicin A

Hence, this enzyme has one substrate, isonocardicin A, and one product, nocardicin A.

This enzyme belongs to the family of isomerases, specifically those racemases and epimerases acting on amino acids and derivatives. The systematic name of this enzyme class is nocardicin-A epimerase. This enzyme is also called isonocardicin A epimerase.
