Accepted name: γ-glutamylanilide synthase
Reaction: ATP + L-glutamate + aniline = ADP + phosphate + N5-phenyl-L-glutamine
Glossary: γ-glutamylanilide = N5-phenyl-L-glutamine
Other name(s): atdA1 (gene name); tdnQ (gene name); dcaQ (gene name)
Systematic name: L-glutamate:aniline ligase (ADP-forming)
Comments: Requires Mg2+. The enzyme, characterized from the bacterium Acinetobacter sp. YAA, catalyses the first step in the degradation of aniline. It can also accept chlorinated and methylated forms of aniline, preferrably in the o- and p-positions.
