Comments [?]

Function Catalyzes the phosphorolysis of N-carbamoylputrescine to form carbamoyl phosphate and putrescine. Is involved in the degradation pathway of the polyamine agmatine.
Catalytic activity RHEA:21936: carbamoyl phosphate + putrescine = H(+) + N-carbamoylputrescine + phosphate
EC 2.1.3.6
Pathway Amine and polyamine biosynthesis; putrescine biosynthesis via agmatine pathway; putrescine from N-carbamoylputrescine (transferase route): step 1/1.
Subunit Homotrimer.
Subcellular location Cytoplasm.
Similarity Belongs to the aspartate/ornithine carbamoyltransferase superfamily. PTCase family.
