This enzyme belongs to the family of transferases that transfer one-carbon groups, specifically the amidinotransferases. The systematic name of this enzyme class is L-arginine:1-amino-1-deoxy-scyllo-inositol-4-phosphate amidinotransferase. Other names in common use include L-arginine:inosamine-P-amidinotransferase, inosamine-P amidinotransferase, L-arginine:inosamine phosphate amidinotransferase, and inosamine-phosphate amidinotransferase. This enzyme participates in streptomycin biosynthesis.
