Superfamily: Phytochelatin synthase, N-terminal domain

According to the literature, members of the structural domains which comprise this superfamily correspond to the structure of the N-terminal domain in phytochelatin synthase, involved in heavy metal-detoxifyication in both prokaryotic and eukaryotic organisms. This is achieved via synthesis of phytochelatins (PC) and homophytochelatins (hPC). This domain is annotated in InterPro as a catalytic domain (INTERPRO:IPR007719).
