ENZYME entry: EC 6.3.1.8

Accepted Name
Glutathionylspermidine synthase.
Alternative Name(s)
Gamma-L-glutamyl-L-cysteinyl-glycine:spermidine ligase (ADP-forming).
Glutathione:spermidine ligase (ADP-forming).
Glutathionylspermidine synthetase.
GSP synthetase.
Reaction catalysed
Glutathione + spermidine + ATP <=> glutathionylspermidine + ADP + phosphate
Cofactor(s)
Mg(2+).
Comment(s)
  • Involved in the synthesis of trypanothione in trypanosomatids.
  • The enzyme from Escherichia coli is bifunctional and also catalyzes the EC 3.5.1.78 reaction, resulting in a net hydrolysis of ATP.
