Subunit composition of L-glutamine:D-fructose-6-phosphate aminotransferase = [GlmS]2

L-glutamine:D-fructose-6-phosphate aminotransferase, or GFAT, catalyzes the first step in hexosamine biosynthesis. The enzyme uses a nucleophilic attack by the thiol group of Cys1 on the δ-carbonyl group of glutamine to form ammonia, which is then channeled through the enzyme to the acceptor group on fructose-6-phosphate. The enzyme can not use exogenous ammonia as the nitrogen donor [Badet87].

The N-terminal domain contains the glutamine amidohydrolase activity, and the C-terminal domain contains the ketose/aldose isomerase activity [Denisot91]. Crystal structures of the isolated domains and the full length enzyme have been solved [Isupov96, Teplyakov98, Teplyakov99, Teplyakov01, Mouilleron06, Mouilleron08]. An 18 Å hydrophobic channel provides a conduit for the transfer of ammonia from the glutamine amidohydrolase active site to the isomerase active site [Teplyakov01]. Molecular dynamics simulations and kinetic analysis of mutants identified roles for W74, A602 and V605 in the opening and closing of the ammonia channel [Floquet07]. Major structural changes occur during the catalytic cycle [Mouilleron08].

Mutants of GlmS that show reduced sensitivity to product inhibition by glucosamine-6-phosphate have been isolated [Deng06].

Expression of GlmS is controlled at several levels. glmS mRNA and protein levels are decreased by growth on amino sugars [Plumbridge93]. glmS is cotranscribed together with glmU in the glmUS operon. Expression of GlmS is uncoupled from the expression of GlmU in various ways. RNase E processes the glmUS transcript at sites between glmU and glmS, generating a monocistronic 1.9 kb glmS transcript. This transcript is very unstable, with a half life of 0.72 minutes [Joanny07]. The small RNAs GlmY [Urban07a] and GlmZ [Kalamorz07] regulate glmS expression posttranscriptionally. Via a regulatory cascade involving processing and stabilization of transcripts, the unprocessed form of GlmZ small regulatory RNA binds to glmS mRNA, uncovering the ribosome binding site and allowing translation [Reichenbach08, Urban08]. Although [Mohanty06] reported that glmS mRNA is polyadenylated, epistasis experiments and direct assays for polyadenylation show that glmS mRNA is not polyadenylated, and the effect of poly(A) polymerase I [Joanny07] on the stability of glmS mRNA is indirect, via polyadenylation of GlmY small regulatory RNA [Reichenbach08, Urban08].

A glmS mutant requires glucosamine or N-acetylglucosamine for growth [Wu71]. Overexpression of the catabolic D-glucosamine-6-phosphate isomerase, NagB, can suppress the requirement for glmS [Vogler89].

The transcription terminator region of glmS contains the unique insertion site for the transposon Tn7 [Gay86].
