IUBMB Comments

In Escherichia coli, this enzyme, along with EC 5.4.99.18, 5-(carboxyamino)imidazole ribonucleotide mutase, is required to carry out the single reaction catalysed by EC 4.1.1.21, phosphoribosylaminoimidazole carboxylase, in vertebrates. Belongs to the ATP grasp protein superfamily . Carboxyphosphate is the putative acyl phosphate intermediate. Involved in the late stages of purine biosynthesis.

The expected taxonomic range for this enzyme is: Bacteria, Archaea, Eukaryota

Synonyms
n5-cair synthetase, more
