, an oxamate carbamoyltransferase
is an enzyme
the chemical reaction
- carbamoyl phosphate + oxamate phosphate + oxalureate
Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are carbamoyl phosphate and oxamate, whereas its two products are phosphate and oxalureate.
This enzyme belongs to the family of transferases that transfer one-carbon groups, specifically the carboxy- and carbamoyltransferases. The systematic name of this enzyme class is carbamoyl-phosphate:oxamate carbamoyltransferase. This enzyme is also called oxamic transcarbamylase. This enzyme participates in purine metabolism.
