Family

Bifunctional glutamine synthetase adenylyltransferase/adenylyl-removing enzyme (IPR023057)

Short name: GlnE

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

None.

Family relationships

None.

Description

This entry represents GlnE family proteins. These proteins adenylate and deadenylate glutamate-ammonia ligases: ATP + {L-Glutamate:ammonia ligase (ADP-forming)} = Diphosphate + Adenylyl-{L-Glutamate:Ammonia ligase (ADP-forming)}

The two activities are functionally the reverse of one another and must be controlled by the organism to prevent futile cycling [PMID: 11585846].
