Glutamate 5-kinase signature





Description

Glutamate 5-kinase (EC 2.7.2.11) (γ-glutamyl kinase) (GK) is the enzyme that catalyzes the first step in the biosynthesis of proline from glutamate, the ATP-dependent phosphorylation of L-glutamate into L-glutamate 5-phosphate.

In eubacteria (gene proB) and yeast [1] (gene PRO1), GK is a monofunctional protein, while in plants and mammals, it is a bifunctional enzyme (P5CS) [2] that consists of two domains: a N-terminal GK domain and a C-terminal γ-glutamyl phosphate reductase domain (EC 1.2.1.41) (see <PDOC00940>).

As a signature pattern, we selected a highly conserved glycine-and alanine-rich region located in the central section of these enzymes.

Yeast hypothetical protein YHR033w is highly similar to GK.
