Enzyme Commission Primary Name: glutamine—fructose-6-phosphate transaminase (isomerizing)

Enzyme Commission Synonyms: hexosephosphate aminotransferase, glucosamine-6-phosphate isomerase (glutamine-forming), glutamine-fructose-6-phosphate transaminase (isomerizing), D-fructose-6-phosphate amidotransferase, glucosaminephosphate isomerase, glucosamine 6-phosphate synthase, GlcN6P synthase

Standard Gibbs Free Energy (ΔrG in kcal/mol): -3.4358826 Inferred by computational analysis [Latendresse13]

Enzyme Commission Summary:
Although the overall reaction is that of a transferase, the mechanism involves the formation of ketimine between fructose 6-phosphate and a 6-amino group from a lysine residue at the active site, which is subsequently displaced by ammonia (transamidination).
