Accepted name: cyclic GMP-AMP synthase
Reaction: ATP + GTP = 2 diphosphate + cyclic Gp(2′-5′)Ap(3′-5′) (overall reaction)
(1a) ATP + GTP = pppGp(2′-5′)A + diphosphate
(1b) pppGp(2′-5′)A = cyclic Gp(2′-5′)Ap(3′-5′) + diphosphate
Glossary: cyclic Gp(2′-5′)Ap(3′-5′) = cyclo[(3′→5′)-guanylyl-(2′→5′)-adenylyl]
Other name(s): cGAMP synthase; cGAS
Systematic name: ATP:GTP adenylyltransferase (cyclizing)
Comments: Cyclic Gp(2′-5′)Ap(3′-5′) is a signalling molecule in mammalian cells that triggers the production of type I interferons and other cytokines.
