Comments [?]

Function The glycine cleavage system catalyzes the degradation of glycine. The H protein shuttles the methylamine group of glycine from the P protein to the T protein.
case <OC:Bacillales>
Function Is also involved in protein lipoylation via its role as an octanoyl/lipoyl carrier protein intermediate.
end case
Cofactor (R)-lipoate
Note: Binds 1 lipoyl cofactor covalently.
Subunit The glycine cleavage system is composed of four proteins: P, T, L and H.
Similarity Belongs to the GcvH family.

Comments The role of GcvH as an octanoyl/lipoyl carrier protein intermediate during protein lipoylation has been shown in Bacillus subtilis (PubMed=21338421, AC:O32174). There are five potential gcvH in AQUAE.
