EC 2.6.1.16

Accepted name: glutamine—fructose-6-phosphate transaminase (isomerizing)

Reaction: L-glutamine + D-fructose 6-phosphate = L-glutamate + D-glucosamine 6-phosphate

For diagram click here.

Other names: hexosephosphate aminotransferase; glucosamine-6-phosphate isomerase (glutamine-forming); glutamine-fructose-6-phosphate transaminase (isomerizing); D-fructose-6-phosphate amidotransferase; glucosaminephosphate isomerase; glucosamine 6-phosphate synthase; GlcN6P synthase

Systematic name: L-glutamine:D-fructose-6-phosphate isomerase (deaminating)

Comments: Although the overall reaction is that of a transferase, the mechanism involves the formation of ketimine between fructose 6-phosphate and a 6-amino group from a lysine residue at the active site, which is subsequently displaced by ammonia (transamidination). Formerly EC 5.3.1.19.
