Substrate specificity of benzamide synthetase involved in 4-hydroxy-3-nitrosobenzamide biosynthesis

Abstract

Glutamine-dependent amidotransferase (Gn-AT) catalyzes the transfer of the amido nitrogen of glutamine to an acceptor substrate to produce glutamate and an aminated product. Although most Gn-ATs are involved in biosyntheses of primary metabolites, some are important in the synthesis of secondary metabolites. Recently, a Gn-AT (NspN) was discovered in the… (More)
