Accepted name: glucosinolate γ-glutamyl hydrolase
Reaction: (1) an (E)-1-(glutathion-S-yl)-N-hydroxy-ω-(methylsulfanyl)alkan-1-imine + H2O = an (E)-1-(L-cysteinylglycin-S-yl)-N-hydroxy-ω-(methylsulfanyl)alkan-1-imine + L-glutamate
(2) (E)-1-(glutathion-S-yl)-N-hydroxy-2-(1H-indol-3-yl)ethan-1-imine + H2O = (E)-1-(L-cysteinylglycin-S-yl)-N-hydroxy-2-(1H-indol-3-yl)ethan-1-imine + L-glutamate
(3) (glutathion-S-yl)(1H-indol-3-yl)acetonitrile + H2O = (L-cysteinylglycin-S-yl)(1H-indol-3-yl)acetonitrile + L-glutamate
(4) (Z)-1-(glutathion-S-yl)-N-hydroxy-2-phenylethan-1-imine + H2O = (Z)-1-(L-cysteinyglycin-S-yl)-N-hydroxy-2-phenylethan-1-imine + L-glutamate
Other name(s): GGP1 (gene name); GGP3 (gene name)
Comments: This enzyme, characterized from the plant Arabidopsis thaliana, participates in the biosynthesis of the plant defense compounds glucosinolates and camalexin. It is the only known plant enzyme capable of hydrolysing the γ-glutamyl residue of glutathione in the cytosol.
