Comments [?]

case <OC:Archaea>
Function Catalyzes the synthesis of gamma-glutamylcysteine (gamma-GC), the main low-molecular-weight thiol compound instead of glutathione in halophilic archaea.
else
Function ATP-dependent carboxylate-amine ligase which exhibits weak glutamate--cysteine ligase activity.
end case
Catalytic activity ATP + L-glutamate + L-cysteine = ADP + phosphate + gamma-L-glutamyl-L-cysteine.
case <OC:Enterobacterales>
Subunit Homodimer.
end case
Similarity Belongs to the glutamate--cysteine ligase type 2 family. YbdK subfamily.
