MetaCyc Enzyme: glutamate dehydrogenase (NAD-dependent)

Gene: gdhA Accession Number: G-8963 (MetaCyc)

Species: Halobacterium salinarum

Subunit composition of glutamate dehydrogenase (NAD-dependent) = [GdhA]6
         NAD-glutamate dehydrogenase subunit = GdhA

Summary:
Halobacterium salinarum is one of the organisms reported to have more than one form of GDH, with different forms utilizing different cofactors (NAD and NADP) [Bonete89, Bonete90]. It was eventually shown that the organism has four genes encoding four different glutamate dehydrogenase enzymes [Ingoldsby05]. Two of these gene products have been purified and characterized biochemically [Bonete96, PerezPomares99]. One of the genes, gdhA1, which was originally predicted to encode an NADP-specific form [Benachenhou91], was found to encode an NAD-specific enzyme, suggesting that sequence information alone in not sufficient to predict the cofator specificity of GDH [Ingoldsby05].

Molecular Weight of Polypeptide: 59.0 kD (experimental) [PerezPomares99 ]

Enzymatic reaction of: glutamate dehydrogenase (NAD-dependent)

Synonyms: glutamic dehydrogenase, L-glutamate:NAD+ oxidoreductase (deaminating)

EC Number: 1.4.1.2

L-glutamate + NAD+ + H2O <=> 2-oxoglutarate + ammonium + NADH + H+

The reaction direction shown, that is, A + B ↔ C + D versus C + D ↔ A + B, is in accordance with the direction of enzyme catalysis.

This reaction is reversible.
