IUBMB Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name: agaritine γ-glutamyltransferase

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.
