Chorismate-utilising enzyme, C-terminal (IPR015890)

Short name: Chorismate_C

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Domain relationships



This entry represents the catalytic regions of the chorismate binding enzymes anthranilate synthase, isochorismate synthase, aminodeoxychorismate synthase and para-aminobenzoate synthase [PMID: 11371633]. Anthranilate synthase catalyses the reaction: chorismate + l-glutamine = anthranilate + pyruvate + l-glutamate. The enzyme is a tetramer comprising 2 I and 2 II components: this entry is restricted to component I that catalyses the formation of anthranilate using ammonia rather than glutamine, while component II provides glutamine amidotransferase activity.
