GMP synthase (EC 6.3.4.1, xanthosine-5'-phosphate—ammonia ligase, guanylate synthetase, XMP aminase, xanthosine 5'-monophosphate aminase) is an enzyme with system name xanthosine-5'-phosphate:ammonia ligase (AMP-forming).[1] This enzyme catalyses the following chemical reaction

ATP + XMP + NH3 \rightleftharpoons AMP + diphosphate + GMP
