Aliases:This biomarker is also known as:
- FGAM synthase,
- phosphoribosylformylglycinamidine synthase,
- FGAR amidotransferase,
- Formylglycinamide ribotide amidotransferase,
- Formylglycinamide ribotide synthetase,
Purines are necessary for many cellular processes, including DNA replication, transcription, and energy metabolism. Ten enzymatic steps are required to synthesize inosine monophosphate (IMP) in the de novo pathway of purine biosynthesis. The PFAS enzyme catalyzes the fourth step of IMP biosynthesis. This step is: ATP + N(2)-formyl-N(1)-(5-phospho-D-ribosyl)glycinamide + L-glutamine + H2O = ADP + phosphate + 2-(formamido)-N(1)-(5-phospho-D-ribosyl)acetamidine + L-glutamate.
