Organism
Mus musculus (Mouse)
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: Annotation score: 5 out of 5-Experimental evidence at protein leveli

Functioni

Catalytic activityi

ATP + 5-phospho-D-ribosylamine + glycine = ADP + phosphate + N(1)-(5-phospho-D-ribosyl)glycinamide.
ATP + 2-(formamido)-N(1)-(5-phospho-D-ribosyl)acetamidine = ADP + phosphate + 5-amino-1-(5-phospho-D-ribosyl)imidazole.
10-formyltetrahydrofolate + N(1)-(5-phospho-D-ribosyl)glycinamide = tetrahydrofolate + N(2)-formyl-N(1)-(5-phospho-D-ribosyl)glycinamide.

Pathwayi: IMP biosynthesis via de novo pathway

This protein is involved in step 2 of the subpathway that synthesizes 5-amino-1-(5-phospho-D-ribosyl)imidazole from N(2)-formyl-N(1)-(5-phospho-D-ribosyl)glycinamide.
Proteins known to be involved in the 2 steps of the subpathway in this organism are:
  1. Phosphoribosylformylglycinamidine synthase (Pfas)
  2. Trifunctional purine biosynthetic protein adenosine-3 (Gart), Trifunctional purine biosynthetic protein adenosine-3 (Gart)
This subpathway is part of the pathway IMP biosynthesis via de novo pathway, which is itself part of Purine metabolism.

Pathwayi: IMP biosynthesis via de novo pathway

This protein is involved in step 2 of the subpathway that synthesizes N(1)-(5-phospho-D-ribosyl)glycinamide from 5-phospho-alpha-D-ribose 1-diphosphate.
Proteins known to be involved in the 2 steps of the subpathway in this organism are:
  1. Amidophosphoribosyltransferase (Ppat), Amidophosphoribosyltransferase (Ppat), Amidophosphoribosyltransferase (Ppat), Amidophosphoribosyltransferase (Ppat)

Similar proteinsi

Links to similar proteins from the UniProt Reference Clusters (UniRef) at 100%, 90% and 50% sequence identity:
100%UniRef100 combines identical sequences and sub-fragments with 11 or more residues from any organism into one UniRef entry.
90%UniRef90 is built by clustering UniRef100 sequences that have at least 90% sequence identity to, and 80% overlap with, the longest sequence (a.k.a seed sequence).
50%UniRef50 is built by clustering UniRef90 seed sequences that have at least 50% sequence identity to, and 80% overlap with, the longest sequence in the cluster.
