Abstract

Recent studies of glutamine PRPP amidotransferase have provided a new understanding of the function and mechanism of this rather complicated enzyme that may be a paradigm for other complex enzymes. New insights have been gained into the mechanisms of catalysis in the active sites of the two half-reactions, catalytic coupling, allosteric control by feedback inhibitors and the channeling of reaction and metabolic intermediates.
