Reaction: agaritine + acceptor = 4-hydroxymethylphenylhydrazine + γ-L-glutamyl-acceptor
Other name(s): (γ-L-glutamyl)-N1-(4-hydroxymethylphenyl)hydrazine:(acceptor) γ-glutamyltransferase
Systematic name: (γ-L-glutamyl)-N1-(4-hydroxymethylphenyl)hydrazine:acceptor γ-glutamyltransferase
Comments: 4-Hydroxyaniline, cyclohexylamine, 1-naphthylhydrazine and similar compounds can act as acceptors; the enzyme also catalyses the hydrolysis of agaritine.
