       isopenicillin-N epimerase
IUBMB Comments
This enzyme contains pyridoxal phosphate. Epimerization at C-5 of the 5-amino-5-carboxypentanoyl group to form penicillin N is required to make a substrate for EC, deactoxycephalosporin-C synthase, to produce cephalosporins. Forms part of the penicillin biosynthesis pathway (for pathway, click here).
