ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
heterotrimeric G-protein GTPase.
Reaction catalysed
GTP + H2O <=> GDP + H(+) + phosphate
  • This group comprises GTP-hydrolyzing systems, where GTP and GDP alternate in binding.
  • This group includes stimulatory and inhibitory G-proteins such as Gs, Gi, Go and Golf, targeting adenylate cyclase and/or K(+) and Ca(2+) channels; Gq stimulating phospholipase C; transducin activating cGMP phosphodiesterase; gustducin activating cAMP phosphodiesterase.
  • Golf is instrumental in odor perception, transducin in vision and gustducin in taste recognition.
  • At least 16 different alpha subunits (39-52 kDa), 5 beta subunits (36 kDa) and 12 gamma subunits (6-9 kDa) are known.
  • Formerly EC
