Name
leukotriene-C4 hydrolase;
gamma-glutamyl leukotrienase;
GGT5
Class
Hydrolases;
Acting on peptide bonds (peptidases);
Omega peptidases
BRITE hierarchy
Reaction(IUBMB)
leukotriene C4 + H2O = leukotriene D4 + L-glutamate [RN:R09875]
Reaction(KEGG)
Substrate
leukotriene C4 [CPD:C02166];
H2O [CPD:C00001]
Product
leukotriene D4 [CPD:C05951];
L-glutamate [CPD:C00025]
Comment
The mouse enzyme is specific for leukotriene C4, while the human enzyme also has considerable activity towards glutathione and oxidized glutathione (cf. EC 3.4.19.13, glutathione hydrolase) [3-4].
