Tetrapyrrole biosynthesis, glutamyl-tRNA reductase, N-terminal (IPR015895)

Short name: 4pyrrol_synth_GluRdtase_N

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Domain relationships



This entry represents the N-terminal domain of glutamyl-tRNA reductase (EC:, which reduces glutamyl-tRNA to glutamate-1-semialdehyde during the first stage of tetrapyrrole biosynthesis by the C5 pathway [PMID: 11215515, PMID: 1502723]. The enzyme requires NADPH as a cofactor.
