InterPro : IPR012772

Name  L-2,4-diaminobutyric acid acetyltransferase Short Name  Ectoine_EctA
Type  Family Description  This enzyme family is the EctA of ectoine biosynthesis. Ectoine is a compatible solute, analogous to trehalose, betaines, etc., found often in halotolerant organisms. EctA is L-2,4-diaminobutyric acid acetyltransferase, also called DABA acetyltransferase [, , ].
