ENZYME entry: EC 1.21.4.2

Accepted Name
Glycine reductase.
Reaction catalysed
Acetyl phosphate + NH(3) + thioredoxin disulfide + H(2)O <=> glycine + phosphate + thioredoxin
Comment(s)
  • The reaction is observed only in the direction of glycine reduction.
  • The enzyme from Eubacterium acidaminophilum consists of subunits A, B and C.
  • Subunit B contains selenocysteine and a pyruvoyl group, and is responsible for glycine binding and ammonia release.
  • Subunit A, which also contains selenocysteine, is reduced by thioredoxin, and is needed to convert the carboxymethyl group into a ketene equivalent, in turn used by subunit C to produce acetyl phosphate.
  • Only subunit B distinguishes this enzyme from EC 1.21.4.3 and EC 1.21.4.4.
