Comments [?]

Function Catalyzes the transfer of succinyl-CoA to arginine to produce N(2)-succinylarginine.
Catalytic activity RHEA:15185: L-arginine + succinyl-CoA = CoA + H(+) + N(2)-succinyl-L-arginine
EC 2.3.1.109
Pathway Amino-acid degradation; L-arginine degradation via AST pathway; L-glutamate and succinate from L-arginine: step 1/5.
Similarity Belongs to the arginine N-succinyltransferase family.
