EC 6.3.2.60     
Accepted name: glutamate—[amino group carrier protein] ligase
Reaction: ATP + L-glutamate + an [amino-group carrier protein]-C-terminal-L-glutamate = ADP + phosphate + an [amino-group carrier protein]-C-terminal-γ-(L-glutamyl)-L-glutamate
Other name(s): argX (gene name)
Systematic name: L-glutamate:an [amino-group carrier protein]-C-terminal-L-glutamate ligase (ADP-forming)
Comments: The enzyme, originally characterized from the archaeon Sulfolobus acidocaldarius, is involved in L-arginine biosynthesis. The enzyme from the archaeon Thermococcus kodakarensis is bifunctional and also catalyses the activity of EC 6.3.2.43, [amino-group carrier protein]—L-2-aminoadipate ligase.
