carbon-nitrogen ligase activity, with glutamine as amido-n-donor Gene Set

Dataset GO Molecular Function Annotations
Category structural or functional annotations
Type molecular function
Description Catalysis of the transfer of the amide nitrogen of glutamine to a variety of substrates. GATases catalyze two separate reactions at two active sites, which are located either on a single polypeptide chain or on different subunits. In the glutaminase reaction, glutamine is hydrolyzed to glutamate and ammonia, which is added to an acceptor substrate in the synthase reaction. (Gene Ontology, GO_0016884)
