Prokaryotic glutathione synthetase, N-terminal (IPR004215)

Short name: GSHS_N

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Domain relationships



Prokaryotic glutathione synthetase EC: (glutathione synthase) catalyses the conversion of gamma-L-glutamyl-L-cysteine and glycine to orthophosphate and glutathione in the presence of ATP. This is the second step in glutathione biosynthesis. The enzyme is inhibited by 7,8-dihydrofolate, methotrexate and trimethoprim. This domain is the N terminus of the enzyme.
