ENZYME entry: EC 6.3.2.29

Accepted Name
Cyanophycin synthase (L-aspartate-adding).
Alternative Name(s)
Cyanophycin synthetase.
Multi-L-arginyl-poly-L-aspartate synthase.
Reaction catalysed
ATP + (L-Asp(4-L-Arg))(n) + L-Asp <=> ADP + phosphate + (L-Asp(4-L-Arg))(n)-L-Asp
Cofactor(s)
Mg(2+).
Comment(s)
  • Both this enzyme and EC 6.3.2.30 are required for the elongation of cyanophycin, which is a protein-like cell inclusion that is unique to cyanobacteria and acts as a temporary nitrogen store.
  • Both enzymes are found in the same protein but have different active sites.
  • Both L-Asp and L-Arg must be present before either enzyme will display significant activity.
