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

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

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

Most BioCyc compounds have been protonated to a reference pH value of 7.3, and some reactions have been computationally balanced for hydrogen by adding free protons. 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): -5.0441284 Inferred 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.
