Glutathione Synthase (Glutathione Synthetase)

One of the enzymes active in the gamma-glutamyl cycle. It catalyzes the synthesis of glutathione from gamma-glutamylcysteine and glycine in the presence of ATP with the formation of ADP and orthophosphate. EC
Also Known As:
Glutathione Synthetase; Synthase, Glutathione; Synthetase, Glutathione; gamma-L-Glutamyl-L-cysteine:glycine ligase (ADP-forming)
