It is now the 3rd CHALLENGE Period for CACAO Fall 2017! It will end on Sunday October 22, 2017 at 11:59 pm CDT
This is your chance to challenge other team's annotations. You may also DEFEND or suggest improvements to your own annotations IF they have been challenged. Please note, although we ENCOURAGE challenges, an excess of identical challenges that do not appear to be applicable to the annotation or well thought out will be considered spam and ignored.

Category:GO:0016884 ! carbon-nitrogen ligase activity, with glutamine as amido-N-donor

Jump to: navigation, search
DAG for GO:0016884id: GO:0016884

name: carbon-nitrogen ligase activity, with glutamine as amido-N-donor
namespace: molecular_function
alt_id: GO:0016003
def: "Catalysis of the transfer of the amide nitrogen of glutamine to a variety of substrates. GATases catalyze two separate reactions at two active sites, which are located either on a single polypeptide chain or on different subunits. In the glutaminase reaction, glutamine is hydrolyzed to glutamate and ammonia, which is added to an acceptor substrate in the synthase reaction." [PMID:12360532]
subset: gosubset_prok
xref: EC:6.3.5
is_a: GO:0016879 ! ligase activity, forming carbon-nitrogen bonds
