Domain

Glutamine synthetase, beta-Grasp domain (IPR008147)

Short name: Gln_synt_b-grasp

Domain relationships

None.

Description

Glutamine synthetase (EC:6.3.1.2) (GS) [PMID: 2900091] plays an essential role in the metabolism of nitrogen by catalysing the condensation of glutamate and ammonia to form glutamine. This entry represents the glutamine synthetase N-terminal domain, which adopts a beta-grasp fold [PMID: 17605815] and contributes to the substrate binding pocket of the enzyme [PMID: 2876389].
