Comments [?]

Function Part of the phosphoribosylformylglycinamidine synthase complex involved in the purines biosynthetic pathway. Catalyzes the ATP-dependent conversion of formylglycinamide ribonucleotide (FGAR) and glutamine to yield formylglycinamidine ribonucleotide (FGAM) and glutamate. The FGAM synthase complex is composed of three subunits. PurQ produces an ammonia molecule by converting glutamine to glutamate. PurL transfers the ammonia molecule to FGAR to form FGAM in an ATP-dependent manner. PurS interacts with PurQ and PurL and is thought to assist in the transfer of the ammonia molecule from PurQ to PurL.
Catalytic activity RHEA:17129: ATP + H2O + L-glutamine + N(2)-formyl-N(1)-(5-phospho-beta-D-ribosyl)glycinamide = 2-formamido-N(1)-(5-O-phospho-beta-D-ribosyl)acetamidine + ADP + H(+) + L-glutamate + phosphate
Pathway Purine metabolism; IMP biosynthesis via de novo pathway; 5-amino-1-(5-phospho-D-ribosyl)imidazole from N(2)-formyl-N(1)-(5-phospho-D-ribosyl)glycinamide: step 1/2.
Subunit Part of the FGAM synthase complex composed of 1 PurL, 1 PurQ and 2 PurS subunits.
Subcellular location Cytoplasm.
Similarity Belongs to the PurS family.

Comments FGAM synthase can be composed of a single polypeptide (large PurL, MF_00419), or it can be composed of three separate proteins: PurL (small PurL, MF_00420), PurQ (MF_00421) and PurS (MF_01926).
