Gss, YgiC and YjfC are ATP-Grasp family proteins with ATPase activities, but only Gss has glutathionylspermidine synthase activity (Sui, 2012). Gss has an N-terminal CHAP (cysteine, histidine-dependent amidohydrolases/peptidases) amidase domain (Bateman, 2003). The gsp gene name has been changed to gss to avoid conflicts with gspA-O. The physiological role of Gss is unknown.
