- Glycine-tRNA ligase
enzymology, a glycine-tRNA ligase (EC number|22.214.171.124) is an enzymethat catalyzes the chemical reaction
:ATP + glycine + tRNAGly AMP + diphosphate + glycyl-tRNAGly
This enzyme belongs to the family of
ligases, specifically those forming carbon-oxygen bonds in aminoacyl-tRNA and related compounds. The systematic name of this enzyme class is glycine:tRNAGly ligase (AMP-forming). Other names in common use include glycyl-tRNA synthetase, glycyl-transfer ribonucleate synthetase, glycyl-transfer RNA synthetase, glycyl-transfer ribonucleic acid synthetase, and glycyl translase. This enzyme participates in glycine, serine and threonine metabolismand aminoacyl-trna biosynthesis.
As of late 2007, 8 structures have been solved for this class of enzymes, with PDB accession codes PDB link|1ATI, PDB link|1B76, PDB link|1GGM, PDB link|1J5W, PDB link|2PME, PDB link|2PMF, PDB link|2Q5H, and PDB link|2Q5I.
CAS registry numberfor this enzyme class is CAS registry|9037-62-1."
