CTP synthase, N-terminal (IPR017456)

Short name: CTP_synthase_N

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Domain relationships



CTP synthase is involved in pyrimidine ribonucleotide/ribonucleoside metabolism, catalysing the synthesis of CTP from UTP by amination of the pyrimidine ring at the 4-position [PMID: 12522217]. The enzyme exists as a dimer of identical chains that aggregates as a tetramer. This gene has been found roughly 500 bp upstream of enolase in both beta (Nitrosomonas europaea) and gamma (Escherichia coli) subdivisions of Proteobacterium [PMID: 9711852].
