3-dehydroquinate synthase AroB (IPR016037)

Short name: DHQ_synth_AroB

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Domain relationships


The 3-dehydroquinate synthase (DHQS) domain can exist in isolation or as a domain in the pentafunctional AROM polypeptide (P07547) [PMID: 7556173]. 3-dehydroquinate synthase catalyses the formation of dehydroquinate (DHQ) and orthophosphate from 3-deoxy-D-arabino heptulosonic 7 phosphate [PMID: 9613570]. This reaction is part of the shikimate pathway which is involved in the biosynthesis of aromatic amino acids.
