Protein

Glutamine synthetase

Gene

glnA

Organism
Archaeoglobus fulgidus (strain ATCC 49558 / VC-16 / DSM 4304 / JCM 9628 / NBRC 100126)
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: -Experimental evidence at protein leveli

Functioni

Probably involved in nitrogen metabolism via ammonium assimilation. Catalyzes the ATP-dependent biosynthesis of glutamine from glutamate and ammonia. Beta-glutamate is a much poorer substrate than alpha-glutamate.1 Publication

Catalytic activityi

ATP + L-glutamate + NH3 = ADP + phosphate + L-glutamine.1 Publication

Cofactori

Mg2+By similarityNote: Binds 2 Mg2+ ions per subunit.By similarity

Kineticsi

  1. KM=0.56 mM for ATP1 Publication
  2. KM=3 mM for alpha-glutamate1 Publication

    Temperature dependencei

    Optimum temperature is 83 degrees Celsius.1 Publication
