MetaCyc Reaction: 2.3.2.6

Superclasses: Reactions Classified By Conversion Type Simple Reactions Chemical Reactions
Reactions Classified By Substrate Macromolecule Reactions Polynucleotide-Reactions RNA-Reactions tRNA-Reactions
Reactions Classified By Substrate Macromolecule Reactions Protein-Reactions

EC Number: 2.3.2.6

Enzymes and Genes:

Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 : leucyl, phenylalanyl-tRNA-protein transferase Inferred from experiment : aat

The reaction direction shown, that is, A + B ↔ C + D versus C + D ↔ A + B, is in accordance with the Enzyme Commission system.

Most BioCyc compounds have been protonated to a reference pH value of 7.3, and some reactions have been computationally balanced for hydrogen by adding free protons. Please see the PGDB Concepts Guide for more information.

Mass balance status: Balanced.

Enzyme Commission Primary Name: leucyltransferase

Enzyme Commission Synonyms: leucyl, phenylalanine-tRNA-protein transferase, leucyl-phenylalanine-transfer ribonucleate-protein aminoacyltransferase, leucyl-phenylalanine-transfer ribonucleate-protein transferase, L-leucyl-tRNA:protein leucyltransferase

Taxonomic Range: Bacteria

Standard Gibbs Free Energy (ΔrG in kcal/mol): -1.1312561 Inferred by computational analysis [Latendresse13]

Enzyme Commission Summary:
Also transfers phenylalanyl groups. Requires a univalent cation. Peptides and proteins containing an N-terminal arginine, lysine or histidine residue can act as acceptors.
