MetaCyc Enzyme: glutathione synthetase

Gene: gshB Accession Numbers: EG10419 (MetaCyc), b2947, ECK2942

Synonyms: gsh-II

Species: Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655

Subunit composition of glutathione synthetase = [GshB]4
         glutathione synthetase monomer = GshB

Summary:
Glutathione synthetase catalyzes the second, final step in the pathway for the biosynthesis of glutathione [Apontoweil75].

Crystal structures of the enzyme have been solved [Kato89, Yamaguchi93, Hara96, Matsuda96]. Site-directed mutagenesis identified the R233 residue [Tanaka92a] and the importance of flexibility of the I226-G242 loop [Tanaka93] for catalytic activity. The loop is thought to enhance the recognition of glycine and stabilize the reaction intermediate [Fan95, Tanaka97]. In the crystal structure of the quarternary complex with ADP, glutathione and sulfate, the flexible loops are fixed, allowing better understanding of the active site and the mechanism of substrate recognition [Hara96]. Further site-directed mutagenesis was used to probe the γ-glutamyl cysteine binding site [Hara95].

A strain overexpressing GshA and GshB is more resistant to radiation than wild type [Moore89]. In cells lacking metal efflux systems, glutathione biosynthesis is required for resistance to Cd2+, Zn2+ and Cu2+ [Helbig08]. A gshB trxB double mutant exhibits a growth defect which can be suppressed by growth in rich medium containing DTT or by gain-of-function mutations in ahpC [Faulkner08].

Transcription of gshB increases with increased cadmium concentration. A microarray analysis measuring the transcriptional response of wild-type and gshB mutant strains to cadmium stress has been performed [Helbig08a].
