- ATP + L-glutamate ADP + L-glutamate 5-phosphate
This enzyme belongs to the family of transferases, specifically those transferring phosphorus-containing groups (phosphotransferases) with a carboxy group as acceptor. The systematic name of this enzyme class is ATP:L-glutamate 5-phosphotransferase. Other names in common use include ATP-L-glutamate 5-phosphotransferase, ATP:gamma-L-glutamate phosphotransferase, gamma-glutamate kinase, gamma-glutamyl kinase, and glutamate kinase. This enzyme participates in urea cycle and metabolism of amino groups.
