Family

Phosphoribosylformylglycinamidine synthase subunit PurQ (IPR010075)

Short name: PRibForGlyAmidine_synth_PurQ

Family relationships

None.

Description

In Gram-negative bacteria and eukaryotes, formylglycinamideribonucleotide amidotransferase is a single protein. In archaea and Gram-positive bacteria it is formed from three proteins. This entry describes the PurQ protein of Bacillus subtilis (where PurL, PurQ, and PurS are required for phosphoribosylformylglycinamidine synthase activity) and functionally equivalent proteins from other bacteria and archaea [PMID: 15301530].
