Homologous Superfamily

ADC synthase (IPR005801)

Short name: ADC_synthase

Overlapping entries


This domain superfamily is characteristic of ADC synthases, including:

  • Anthranilate synthase aminodeoxyisochorismate synthase/lyase subunit, TrpE, which catalyses the formation of anthranilate (o-aminobenzoate) and pyruvic acid from chorismate and glutamine [PMID: 11224570, PMID: 11371633].

  • P-aminobenzoate synthase component I (Aminodeoxychorismate synthase), which catalyzes the two-step biosynthesis of 4-amino-4-deoxychorismate (ADC), a precursor of p-aminobenzoate and folate in microorganisms [PMID: 11841211].

  • Menaquinone-specific isochorismate synthase MenF, which catalyses the conversion of chorismate to isochorismate [PMID: 17240978].

  • Salicylate synthetase Irp9, which is involved in the biosynthesis of the siderophore yersiniabactin in Yersinia enterocolitica [PMID: 16434053].

  • Salicylate synthase MbtI (Mycobactin synthetase protein I), which is involved in salicylate production [PMID: 16923875].
