Anthranilate synthase component I, N-terminal (IPR006805)

Short name: Anth_synth_I_N

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Domain relationships



Anthranilate synthase catalyses the first step in the biosynthesis of tryptophan. Component I catalyses the formation of anthranilate using ammonia and chorismate. The catalytic site lies in the adjacent region, described in the chorismate binding enzyme family (IPR005801). This region is involved in feedback inhibition by tryptophan [PMID: 11371633]. This family also contains a region of Para-aminobenzoate synthase component I.
