EC Details
EC number
Accepted name
glycine dehydrogenase (aminomethyl-transferring)
glycine + [glycine-cleavage complex H protein]-N6-lipoyl-L-lysine = [glycine-cleavage complex H protein]-S-aminomethyl-N6-dihydrolipoyl-L-lysine + CO2
Other name(s)
P-protein, glycine decarboxylase, glycine-cleavage complex, glycine:lipoylprotein oxidoreductase (decarboxylating and acceptor-aminomethylating), protein P1, glycine dehydrogenase (decarboxylating), glycine cleavage system P-protein, glycine-cleavage complex P-protein
Systematic name
glycine:H-protein-lipoyllysine oxidoreductase (decarboxylating, acceptor-amino-methylating)
CAS registry number
A pyridoxal-phosphate protein. A component of the glycine cleavage system, which is composed of four components that only loosely associate: the P protein (EC, the T protein (EC, aminomethyltransferase), the L protein (EC, dihydrolipoyl dehydrogenase) and the lipoyl-bearing H protein [3]. Previously known as glycine synthase.
