transglutaminase

An important extracellular enzyme that catalyses the formation of an amide bond between side-chain glutamine and side-chain lysine residues in proteins with the elimination of ammonia. The linkage is stable and plays an important role in many extracellular assembly processes.

Transglutaminase

A transglutaminase is an enzyme that catalyzes the formation of an isopeptide bond between a free amine group (e.g., protein- or peptide-bound lysine) and the acyl group at the end of the side chain of protein- or peptide-bound glutamine. The reaction also produces a molecule of ammonia. Such an enzyme is classified as {EC number|2.3.2.13}. Bonds ...

transglutaminase

Type: Term Pronunciation: tranz′glū-ta′min-ās Definitions: 1. A group of enzymes that catalyze the calcium-dependent acyl transfer reaction in which the amide moiety of peptide-bound glutaminyl residues serve as acyl donor; a specific transglutaminase covalently cross-links fibrin molecules between glutamine and the ε-ami...
