General annotation (Comments)

Catalytic activity

2 ATP + L-glutamine + HCO3- + H2O = 2 ADP + phosphate + L-glutamate + carbamoyl phosphate. HAMAP-Rule MF_01209

Pathway

Amino-acid biosynthesis; L-arginine biosynthesis; carbamoyl phosphate from bicarbonate: step 1/1. HAMAP-Rule MF_01209

Pyrimidine metabolism; UMP biosynthesis via de novo pathway; (S)-dihydroorotate from bicarbonate: step 1/3. HAMAP-Rule MF_01209

Subunit structure

Composed of two chains; the small (or glutamine) chain promotes the hydrolysis of glutamine to ammonia, which is used by the large (or ammonia) chain to synthesize carbamoyl phosphate By similarity.

Sequence similarities

Belongs to the CarA family.

Contains 1 glutamine amidotransferase type-1 domain.

Sequence caution

The sequence AAL51707.1 differs from that shown. Reason: Erroneous initiation.
