In enzymology, a protein-serine epimerase (EC 5.1.1.16) is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction

[protein]-L-serine [protein]-D-serine

Hence, this enzyme has one substrate, [protein]-L-serine, and one product, [protein]-D-serine.

This enzyme belongs to the family of isomerases, specifically those racemases and epimerases acting on amino acids and derivatives. The systematic name of this enzyme class is [protein]-serine epimerase, this enzyme is also called protein-serine racemase.

Structural studies[edit]

As of late 2007, only one structure has been solved for this class of enzymes, with the PDB accession code 1WTC.
