The maturation of epidermin requires a series of modification reactions to change its chemical structure. EpiD protein, whose three-dimensional structure is shown here, catalyzes the first modification of epidermin, the decarboxylation of the C-terminal cysteine residue. EpiD is essential for epidermin biosynthesis.
Information about structure of epidermin-biosynthesis protein EpiD can be found at the Center for Structural Genomics of Infectious Diseases (CSGID) webpage, and the Protein Data Bank entry 3QJG.
