  Domain Name: AdSS
Adenylosuccinate synthetase (AdSS) catalyzes the first step in the de novo biosynthesis of AMP. IMP and L-aspartate are conjugated in a two-step reaction accompanied by the hydrolysis of GTP to GDP in the presence of Mg2+. In the first step, the r-phosphate group of GTP is transferred to the 6-oxygen atom of IMP. An aspartate then displaces this 6-phosphate group to form the product adenylosuccinate. Because of its critical role in purine biosynthesis, AdSS is a target of antibiotics, herbicides and antitumor drugs.
No pairwise interactions are available for this conserved domain.
