Term Information [More information on carbamoyl-phosphate synthase complex]

Accession
GO:0005951
Name
carbamoyl-phosphate synthase complex
Ontology
cellular_component
Synonyms
carbamoyl phosphate synthase complex, arginine-specific carbamoyl phosphate synthetase complex, carbamoyl-phosphate synthase arginine-specific complex
Definition
A protein complex that catalyzes the formation of carbamoyl phosphate; comprises a small subunit that binds and cleaves glutamine, and a large subunit that accepts the ammonia group cleaved from glutamine, binds all of the remaining substrates and effectors, and carries out all of the other catalytic events. Source: PMID:8626695
Comment
Note that in higher eukaryotes, carbamoyl-phosphate synthase is usually a single polypeptide, not a complex, and should therefore not be annotated to this component term.
