- ATP + 7,8-diaminononanoate + CO2 ADP + phosphate + dethiobiotin
This enzyme belongs to the family of ligases, specifically the cyclo-ligases, which form carbon-nitrogen bonds. The systematic name of this enzyme class is 7,8-diaminononanoate:carbon-dioxide cyclo-ligase (ADP-forming). This enzyme is also called desthiobiotin synthase. This enzyme participates in biotin metabolism.
