An enzyme that catalyzes the synthesis of pyroglutamate from a gamma-glutamyl-amino acid, also releasing the free amino acid. The enzyme acts on derivatives of glutamate, 2-aminobutyrate, alanine and glycine. The enzyme has been proposed to have a role in a gamma-glutamyl cycle for amino acid transport into cells in the intestines. EC 18.104.22.168.
Also Known As:
gamma-Glutamylamine Cyclotransferase; Cyclotransferase, gamma-Glutamylamine; gamma Glutamylamine Cyclotransferase; gamma Glutamylcyclotransferase; (5-L-Glutamyl)-L-amino-acid 5-glutamyltransferase (cyclizing)
