PFAM accession number:PF02844
Interpro abstract (IPR020562):

Phosphoribosylglycinamide synthetase ( EC ) (GARS) (phosphoribosylamine glycine ligase) [ (PUBMED:2687276) ] catalyses the second step in the de novo biosynthesis of purine. The reaction catalysed by phosphoribosylglycinamide synthetase is the ATP-dependent addition of 5-phosphoribosylamine to glycine to form 5'phosphoribosylglycinamide: ATP + 5-phosphoribosylamine + glycine = ADP + P i + 5'-phosphoribosylglycinamide In bacteria, GARS is a monofunctional enzyme (encoded by the purD gene). In yeast, GARS is part of a bifunctional enzyme (encoded by the ADE5,7 gene) in conjunction with phosphoribosylformylglycinamidine cyclo-ligase (AIRS) [ (PUBMED:3097325) ]. In higher eukaryotes, GARS is part of a trifunctional enzyme in conjunction with AIRS and with phosphoribosylglycinamide formyltransferase (GART), forming GARS-AIRS-GART [ (PUBMED:2147474) ].

This entry represents the N-domain, which is related to the N-terminal domain of biotin carboxylase/carbamoyl phosphate synthetase ( IPR005481 ).

GO process:purine nucleobase biosynthetic process (GO:0009113)
GO function:phosphoribosylamine-glycine ligase activity (GO:0004637)
