IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name:
glycine N-phenylacetyltransferase
Other names:
arylacetyl-CoA N-acyltransferase
Systematic name:
phenylacetyl-CoA:glycine N-phenylacetyltransferase



Not identical with EC (glycine N-acyltransferase). This enzyme was purified from bovine liver mitochondria. L-asparagine, L-glutamine and L-arginine are alternative substrates to glycine, but have higher Km values.
