Accepted name: [amino-group carrier protein]-L-glutamate 6-kinase
Reaction: ATP + an [amino-group carrier protein]-C-terminal-γ-(L-glutamyl)-L-glutamate = ADP + an [amino-group carrier protein]-C-terminal-γ-(5-phospho-L-glutamyl)-L-glutamate
Other name(s): lysZ (gene name)
Systematic name: [amino-group carrier protein]-C-terminal-γ-(L-glutamyl)-L-glutamine 5-O-kinase
Comments: The enzyme participates in an L-arginine biosynthetic pathway in certain species of archaea. In some organisms the enzyme also catalyses the activity of EC, [amino-group carrier protein]-L-2-aminoadipate 6-kinase.
