|SAMP-activating enzyme E1.|
|ATP + [SAMP]-Gly-Gly <=> diphosphate + [SAMP]-Gly-Gly-AMP|
- The enzyme catalyzes the activation of SAMPs (Small Archaeal Modifier
Proteins), which are ubiquitin-like proteins found only in the
Archaea, by catalyzing the ATP-dependent formation of a SAMP
adenylate in which the C-terminal glycine of SAMP is bound to AMP via
an acyl-phosphate linkage.
- The product of this activity can accept a sulfur atom to form a
thiocarboxylate moiety that acts as a sulfur carrier involved in
thiolation of tRNA and other metabolites such as molybdopterin.
- Alternatively, the enzyme can also catalyze the transfer of SAMP from
its activated form to an internal cysteine residue, leading to a
process termed SAMPylation (see EC 184.108.40.206).
