General annotation (Comments)

Function

Catalyzes the formation of agmatine from arginine.

Catalytic activity

L-arginine = agmatine + CO2.

Cofactor

Pyridoxal phosphate.

Pathway

Amine and polyamine biosynthesis; agmatine biosynthesis; agmatine from L-arginine: step 1/1. Ref.6

Subcellular location

Cytoplasm Probable.

Sequence similarities

Belongs to the Orn/Lys/Arg decarboxylase class-I family.

Caution

Was originally (Ref.1) thought to be a lysine decarboxylase and was consequently named cad.
