Co-expression of EpmB enhances the lysylation of EF-P by EpmA in vivo. EpmB may catalyze the conversion of α-lysyl-EF-P to β-lysyl-EF-P [Yanagisawa10], but preliminary evidence indicates that it acts before EpmA [Park12].
The epmB gene product is similar to the lysine 2,3-aminomutase of Clostridium subterminale, although phylogenetic clustering has shown that EpmB belongs to a different subfamily than the lysine 2,3-aminomutases [Bailly10]. The purified protein has low lysine 2,3-aminomutase activity and produces (R)-β-lysine, the enantiomer of the product of the Clostridium enzyme. The low activity of the E. coli enzyme compared to the clostridial enzyme may indicate that L-lysine is not its natural substrate, or that β-lysine is required in low amounts [Behshad06]. EpmB is a member of the "radical SAM" family of enzymes, and the lysyl-free radical intermediate of the reaction has been characterized [Behshad06].
