InterPro : IPR003462

Name  Ornithine cyclodeaminase/mu-crystallin Short Name  ODC_Mu_crystall
Type  Family Description  This entry represents the bacterial ornithine cyclodeaminase enzyme family, which catalyse the deamination of ornithine to proline []. The family also includes archaeal alanine dehydrogenase []and mu-crystallin, a mammalian homologue of bacterial ornithine cyclodeaminase [], which is the major component of the eye lens in several Australian marsupials. mRNA for mu-crystallin has also been found in human retina [].
