  • molecular
  • This list contains a list of EC numbers for the sixth group, EC 6, ligases, placed in numerical order as determined by the Nomenclature Committee of the International Union of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. (wikipedia.org)
  • deamination
  • The small subunit contains one active site for the binding and deamination of glutamine to make ammonia and glutamate. (wikipedia.org)
  • In the human body, deamination takes place primarily in the liver, however glutamate is also deaminated in the kidneys. (wikipedia.org)
  • Ammonia is toxic to the human system, and enzymes convert it to urea or uric acid by addition of carbon dioxide molecules (which is not considered a deamination process) in the urea cycle, which also takes place in the liver. (wikipedia.org)
  • Spontaneous deamination of 5-methylcytosine results in thymine and ammonia. (wikipedia.org)
  • toxic
  • This is dangerous because ammonia is highly toxic to the body, especially the nervous system, and can result in retardation and seizures. (wikipedia.org)
  • nitrogen
  • Sometimes the body does not produce enough CPSI due to a mutation in the genetic code, resulting in poor metabolism of proteins and nitrogen, as well as high levels of ammonia in the body. (wikipedia.org)
  • levels
  • The lack of ammonia-dependent asparagine synthetase in eukaryotes is presumably because of the need to maintain cellular concentrations of ammonia at very low levels. (wikipedia.org)
