BRITE hierarchy
Sysname
acetyl-phosphate ammonia:thioredoxin disulfide oxidoreductase (glycine-forming)
Reaction(IUBMB)
acetyl phosphate + NH3 + thioredoxin disulfide + H2O = glycine + phosphate + thioredoxin [RN:R07226]
Reaction(KEGG)
Substrate
acetyl phosphate [CPD:C00227];
NH3 [CPD:C00014];
thioredoxin disulfide [CPD:C00343];
H2O [CPD:C00001]
Product
glycine [CPD:C00037];
phosphate [CPD:C00009];
thioredoxin [CPD:C00342]
Comment
The reaction is observed only in the direction of glycine reduction. The enzyme from Eubacterium acidaminophilum consists of subunits A, B and C. Subunit B contains selenocysteine and a pyruvoyl group, and is responsible for glycine binding and ammonia release. Subunit A, which also contains selenocysteine, is reduced by thioredoxin, and is needed to convert the carboxymethyl group into a ketene equivalent, in turn used by subunit C to produce acetyl phosphate. Only subunit B distinguishes this enzyme from EC 1.21.4.3 (sarcosine reductase) and EC 1.21.4.4 (betaine reductase).
