Reaction: 4-(γ-L-glutamylamino)-(S)-2-hydroxybutanoyl-[BtrI acyl-carrier protein] + ribostamycin = γ-L-glutamyl-butirosin B + BtrI acyl-carrier protein
Other name(s): btrH (gene name)
Systematic name: ribostamycin:4-(γ-L-glutamylamino)-(S)-2-hydroxybutanoyl-[BtrI acyl-carrier protein] 4-(γ-L-glutamylamino)-(S)-2-hydroxybutanoate transferase
Comments: The enzyme attaches the side chain of the aminoglycoside antibiotics of the butirosin family. The side chain confers resistance against several aminoglycoside-modifying enzymes.
