Glutamine synthetase enzyme. Computer model of a molecule of glutamine synthetase. This is a ligase enzyme, that is an enzyme that forms chemical bonds between molecules. The different colours show the different subunits that comprise the protein. Proteins form the majority of the structural and functional units in all organisms. Study of the structure and function of proteins (proteomics) provides greater insight into how organisms work.
