Names and origin

Protein namesRecommended name:
Glutamate decarboxylase B

EC=4.1.1.15
Gene names
Name:gadB
ORF Names:DDB_G0288715
OrganismDictyostelium discoideum (Slime mold) [Reference proteome]
Taxonomic identifier44689 [NCBI]
Taxonomic lineageEukaryotaAmoebozoaMycetozoaDictyosteliidaDictyostelium

Protein attributes

Sequence length463 AA.
Sequence statusComplete.
Protein existenceEvidence at transcript level

General annotation (Comments)

Function

Generates GABA from glutamate. Likely to be responsible for the metabolism of glutamate via the GABA shunt to succinate during growth.

Catalytic activity

L-glutamate = 4-aminobutanoate + CO2.

Cofactor

Pyridoxal phosphate By similarity.

Subunit structure

Homohexamer By similarity.

Developmental stage

Expressed in growing cells, its mRNA continuously decreases during development. Highly expressed during phagocytosis of non-pathogenic bacteria. Ref.2 Ref.3

Sequence similarities

Belongs to the group II decarboxylase family.
