Enzymes and Genes:

Bos taurus: phenylacetyl-coenzyme A:glycine N-acyltransferaseInferred from experiment: GAT

In Pathway: L-phenylalanine degradation IV (mammalian, via side chain)

The direction shown, i.e. which substrates are on the left and right sides, is in accordance with the Enzyme Commission system.

Most BioCyc compounds have been protonated to a reference pH value of 7.3. Please see the PGDB Concepts Guide for more information.

Mass balance status: Balanced.

Enzyme Commission Primary Name: glycine N-phenylacetyltransferase

Enzyme Commission Synonyms: arylacetyl-CoA N-acyltransferase, arylacetyltransferase, GAT (gene name)

Standard Gibbs Free Energy (ΔrG in kcal/mol): -5.0441284Inferred by computational analysis [Latendresse13]

Enzyme Commission Summary:
Not identical with EC (glycine N-acyltransferase). This enzyme was purified from bovine liver mitochondria. L-asparagine, L-glutamine and L-arginine are also substrates, but have higher Km values.
