EC 188.8.131.52 - Anthranilate synthase
IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
chorismate pyruvate-lyase (amino-accepting)
- chorismate + L-glutamine = anthranilate + pyruvate + L-glutamate
In some organisms, this enzyme is part of a multifunctional protein, together with one or more other components of the system for the biosynthesis of tryptophan [EC 184.108.40.206 (anthranilate phosphoribosyltransferase ), EC 220.127.116.11 (indole-3-glycerol-phosphate synthase), EC 18.104.22.168 (tryptophan synthase) and EC 22.214.171.124 (phosphoribosylanthranilate isomerase)]. The native enzyme in the complex uses either glutamine or, less efficiently, NH3. The enzyme separated from the complex uses NH3 only.
