Enzyme Commission Summary for 22.214.171.124:
Involved in the synthesis of trypanothione in trypanosomatids. The enzyme from Escherichia coli is bifunctional and also catalyzes the EC 126.96.36.199 reaction, resulting in a net hydrolysis of ATP.
Enzyme Commission Summary for 188.8.131.52:
The enzyme, characterized from several trypanosomatids (e.g. Trypanosoma cruzi) catalyses two subsequent reactions, leading to production of trypanothione from glutathione and spermidine. Some trypanosomatids (e.g. Crithidia species and some Leishmania species) also contain an enzyme that only carries out the first reaction (cf. EC 184.108.40.206, glutathionylspermidine synthase). The enzyme is bifunctional, and also catalyses the hydrolysis of glutathionylspermidine and trypanothione (cf. EC 220.127.116.11, glutathionylspermidine amidase).
