Entry
EC 2.3.1.13                 Enzyme                                 
Name

glycine N-acyltransferase;
glycine acyltransferase;
glycine-N-acylase

Class

Transferases;
Acyltransferases;
Transferring groups other than aminoacyl groups

Sysname

acyl-CoA:glycine N-acyltransferase

Reaction(IUBMB)
acyl-CoA + glycine = CoA + N-acylglycine [RN:R00395]
Reaction(KEGG) Substrate Product Comment
The CoA derivatives of a number of aliphatic and aromatic acids, but not phenylacetyl-CoA or (indol-3-yl)acetyl-CoA, can act as donor. Not identical with EC 2.3.1.68 glutamine N-acyltransferase or EC 2.3.1.71 glycine N-benzoyltransferase.
History

EC 2.3.1.13 created 1961
