Phosphoribosylformylglycinamidine synthase (IPR010073)

Short name: PRibForGlyAmidine_synth

Family relationships



This entry represents a single-molecule form of phosphoribosylformylglycinamidine synthase, also called FGAM synthase, an enzyme of purine de novo biosynthesis. This form is found mostly in eukaryotes and proteobacteria. In Bacillus subtilis PurL (FGAM synthase II) and PurQ (FGAM synthase I) perform the equivalent function; the unrelated small protein PurS is also required and may be a third subunit [PMID: 10784038].
