Homologous Superfamily

Quinolinate phosphoribosyl transferase, N-terminal domain superfamily (IPR037128)

Short name: Quinolinate_PRibosylTase_N_sf

Overlapping entries


Quinolinate phosphoribosyl transferase (QPRTase) or nicotinate-nucleotide pyrophosphorylase EC: is involved in the de novo synthesis of NAD in both prokaryotes and eukaryotes. It catalyses the reaction of quinolinic acid with 5-phosphoribosyl-1-pyrophosphate (PRPP) in the presence of Mg2+ to give rise to nicotinic acid mononucleotide (NaMN), pyrophosphate and carbon dioxide [PMID: 9016724, PMID: 8561507]. Unlike IPR004393, this domain superfamily also includes the molybdenum transport system protein ModD.
