ENZYME entry: EC 2.1.2.2

Accepted Name
phosphoribosylglycinamide formyltransferase 1
Alternative Name(s)
2-amino-N-ribosylacetamide 5'-phosphate transformylase
5,10-methenyltetrahydrofolate:2-amino-N-ribosylacetamide ribonucleotide transformylase
5'-phosphoribosylglycinamide transformylase
GAR formyltransferase
GART
GAR TFase
GAR transformylase
glycinamide ribonucleotide transformylase
Reaction catalysed
(6R)-10-formyltetrahydrofolate + N(1)-(5-phospho-beta-D-ribosyl)glycinamide = (6S)-5,6,7,8-tetrahydrofolate + H(+) + N(2)-formyl-N(1)-(5-phospho-beta-D-ribosyl)glycinamide
Comment(s)
  • Two enzymes are known to catalyze the third step in de novo purine biosynthesis.
  • This enzyme utilizes 10-formyltetrahydrofolate as the formyl donor, while the other enzyme, EC 6.3.1.21, utilizes formate.
  • In vertebrates this activity is catalyzed by a trifunctional enzyme that also catalyzes the activities of EC 6.3.4.13 and EC 6.3.3.1.
