MetaCyc Enzyme: glutaminase B

Species: Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655

Subunit composition of glutaminase B = [glutaminase B monomer]4

Summary:
Two glutaminases were purified from E. coli B. They differ in their pH optima and regulation [Prusiner71]. Glutaminase B is active at neutral and alkaline pH [Prusiner76], and the enzyme is constitutive [Prusiner75].

Molecular Weight of Polypeptide: 22.5 kD (from nucleotide sequence)

Molecular Weight of Multimer: 90.0 kD (experimental) [Prusiner76]

pI: 5.4 [Prusiner76]

Gene-Reaction Schematic: ?

Enzymatic reaction of: glutaminase B

Synonyms: glutaminase, L-glutamine amidohydrolase

EC Number: 3.5.1.2

L-glutamine + H2O <=> L-glutamate + ammonium

The reaction direction shown, that is, A + B ↔ C + D versus C + D ↔ A + B, is in accordance with the Enzyme Commission system.

The reaction is physiologically favored in the direction shown.

Alternative Substrates [Comment 1]:

In Pathways: glutamine degradation I
