PathwaySulfur metabolism; glutathione biosynthesis; glutathione from L-cysteine and L-glutamate: step 2/2.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in GSS are the cause of glutathione synthetase deficiency (GSS deficiency) [MIM:266130]; also known as 5-oxoprolinuria or pyroglutamic aciduria. It is a severe form characterized by an increased rate of hemolysis and defective function of the central nervous system. Defects in GSS are the cause of glutathione synthetase deficiency of erythrocytes (GLUSYNDE)[MIM:231900]. Glutathione synthetase deficiency of erythrocytes is a mild form causing hemolytic anemia.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the eukaryotic GSH synthase family.
