Catalysis of a biochemical reaction at physiological temperatures. In biologically catalyzed reactions, the reactants are known as substrates, and the catalysts are naturally occurring macromolecular substances known as enzymes. Enzymes possess specific binding sites for substrates, and are usually composed wholly or largely of protein, but RNA that has catalytic activity (ribozyme) is often also regarded as enzymatic.
diaminopimelate decarboxylase activity
Catalysis of the reaction: meso-2,6-diaminopimelate + H(+) = L-lysine + CO(2).
lysine biosynthetic process via diaminopimelate
The chemical reactions and pathways resulting in the formation of lysine, via the intermediate diaminopimelate.
