ENZYME entry: EC 6.3.4.18

Accepted Name
5-(carboxyamino)imidazole ribonucleotide synthase.
Alternative Name(s)
N(5)-CAIR synthetase.
N(5)-carboxyaminoimidazole ribonucleotide synthetase.
Reaction catalysed
ATP + 5-amino-1-(5-phospho-D-ribosyl)imidazole + HCO(3)(-) <=> ADP + phosphate + 5-carboxyamino-1-(5-phospho-D-ribosyl)imidazole
Comment(s)
  • In Escherichia coli, this enzyme, along with EC 5.4.99.18, is required to carry out the single reaction catalyzed by EC 4.1.1.21 in vertebrates.
  • Carboxyphosphate is the putative acyl phosphate intermediate.
  • Involved in the late stages of purine biosynthesis.
