Reactions
ATP + L-Lysine + beta-Alanine = Diphosphate + AMP + beta-Alanyl-L-lysine
ATP + L-Arginine + beta-Alanine = Diphosphate + AMP + beta-Alanyl-L-arginine
ATP + beta-Alanine + L-Histidine = Diphosphate + AMP + Carnosine
ATP + L-Histidine + 4-Aminobutanoate = Diphosphate + AMP + Homocarnosine
ATP + beta-Alanine + N(pi)-Methyl-L-histidine = Diphosphate + AMP + beta-Alanyl-N(pi)-methyl-L-histidine
