mutase

[′myü‚tās]
(biochemistry)
An enzyme able to catalyze a dismutation or a molecular rearrangement.

Mutase

 

an enzyme that catalyzes the transport of certain functional groups from one part of a molecule to another. The conversion of glucose-6-phosphate to glucose-1-phosphate during glycolysis is catalyzed by phosphoglucomutase (phosphotransferase), a mutase that carries out the intramolecular transport of phosphate groups.

This vitamin exerts its physiological action through two enzymatic pathways: the first acts as a co-factor for the methionine synthase enzyme that converts homocysteine into methionine and the second acts upon L-methylmalonyl Coenzyme A (CoA) mutase enzyme to convert methylmalonyl-CoA into succinyl-CoA4.
Both RelA and SpoT proteins have similar multi-domain structures and the domains from N- terminus to C-terminus are: HD [(p)ppGpp hydrolase], Rel-Spo [(p)ppGpp synthetase], TGS (named after threonyl-tRNA synthetase, GTPases and SpoT proteins where this domain is conserved) and ACT (named after acetolactate synthetase, chorismate mutase and TyrR proteins where this domain is conserved) (1,5).
