Aminodeoxychorismate lyase (ADC lyase) converts aminodeoxychorismate to para-aminobenzoate during the process of tetrahydrofolate biosynthesis [PMID: 1644759]. Tetrahydrofolate is an essential precursor for de novo purine biosynthesis. ADC lyase is a pyridoxal-phosphate-binding protein belonging to the class IV aminotransferase family.
