Functioni

Catalytic activityi

2 ATP + L-glutamine + HCO3- + H2O = 2 ADP + phosphate + L-glutamate + carbamoyl phosphate.

Pathwayi: L-arginine biosynthesis

This protein is involved in step 1 of the subpathway that synthesizes carbamoyl phosphate from bicarbonate.
Proteins known to be involved in this subpathway in this organism are:
  1. Carbamoyl-phosphate synthase large chain, N-terminal section (carB1), Carbamoyl-phosphate synthase small chain (carA), Carbamoyl-phosphate synthase large chain, C-terminal section (carB2)
This subpathway is part of the pathway L-arginine biosynthesis, which is itself part of Amino-acid biosynthesis.
View all proteins of this organism that are known to be involved in the subpathway that synthesizes carbamoyl phosphate from bicarbonate, the pathway L-arginine biosynthesis and in Amino-acid biosynthesis.

Pathwayi: UMP biosynthesis via de novo pathway

This protein is involved in step 1 of the subpathway that synthesizes (S)-dihydroorotate from bicarbonate.
Proteins known to be involved in the 3 steps of the subpathway in this organism are:
  1. Carbamoyl-phosphate synthase large chain, N-terminal section (carB1), Carbamoyl-phosphate synthase small chain (carA), Carbamoyl-phosphate synthase large chain, C-terminal section (carB2)
  2. Aspartate carbamoyltransferase (pyrB)
  3. Dihydroorotase (pyrC)
This subpathway is part of the pathway UMP biosynthesis via de novo pathway, which is itself part of Pyrimidine metabolism.
