case <OC:Archaea>
FUNCTIONCatalyzes the synthesis of gamma-glutamylcysteine (gamma-GC), the main low-molecular-weight thiol compound instead of glutathione in halophilic archaea.
FUNCTIONATP-dependent carboxylate-amine ligase which exhibits weak glutamate--cysteine ligase activity.
end case
CATALYTIC ACTIVITY Reaction=ATP + L-cysteine + L-glutamate = ADP + gamma-L-glutamyl-L- cysteine + H(+) + phosphate; Xref=Rhea:RHEA:13285, ChEBI:CHEBI:15378, ChEBI:CHEBI:29985, ChEBI:CHEBI:30616, ChEBI:CHEBI:35235, ChEBI:CHEBI:43474, ChEBI:CHEBI:58173, ChEBI:CHEBI:456216; EC=;
case <OC:Enterobacterales>
end case
SIMILARITYBelongs to the glutamate--cysteine ligase type 2 family. YbdK subfamily.
