EC 6.3.2.41     
Accepted name: N-acetylaspartylglutamate synthase
Reaction: ATP + N-acetyl-L-aspartate + L-glutamate = ADP + phosphate + N-acetyl-L-aspartyl-L-glutamate
Other name(s): N-acetylaspartylglutamate synthetase; NAAG synthetase; NAAGS; RIMKLA (gene name) (ambiguous); RIMKLB (gene name) (ambiguous)
Systematic name: N-acetyl-L-aspartate:L-glutamate ligase (ADP, N-acetyl-L-aspartyl-L-glutamate-forming)
Comments: The enzyme, found in animals, produces the neurotransmitter N-acetyl-L-aspartyl-L-glutamate. One isoform also has the activity of EC 6.3.1.17, β-citrylglutamate synthase [2], while another isoform has the activity of EC 6.3.2.42, N-acetylaspartylglutamylglutamate synthase [3].
