glutamate synthase

glu·ta·mate syn·thase

an enzyme that converts l-glutamine, α-ketoglutarate, and NADH (in some cases, NADPH) to two l-glutamates and NAD+ (or NADP+); apparently, a nonmammalian enzyme. In some plants this is a ferredoxin-dependent reaction.

The present volume considers such topics as flavoenzymes involved in non-redox reactions, mechanisms of bacterial luciferase and related flavin reductases, choline oxidase and related systems, toward understanding the mechanism of oxygen activation by flavoprotein oxidases, glutamate synthase, and flavoprotein dehalogenases.
