Entry M0111 126.96.36.199 glutamate synthase (ferredoxin)
Previous Step Next Step
The amine initiates an elimination of the bound hydroxide as water, which deprotonates Lys972.
Comment: This reaction (final step of Schiff base formation) occurs in the FMN-binding domain (CATH code 188.8.131.52). We assume that Lys972 is acting as the acid in this step as it is hydrogen bonded to the hydroxyl leaving group.
