Anthranilate synthase (IPR010112)

Short name: TrpE-G

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships



This entry represents a small group of anthranilate synthases mainly from alpha proteobacteria and Nostoc (a cyanobacterium). Anthranilate synthase catalyses the first step in the pathway for the biosynthesis of tryprophan from chorismate. The genes involved in this enzymatic reaction are trpE and trpG, which encode component I and II of the anthranilate synthase. This group of proteins consists of a TrpE(G) fused protein [PMID: 8939798].
