Strictosidine synthase, conserved region (IPR018119)

Short name: Strictosidine_synth_cons-reg

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Domain relationships



This entry represents a conserved region found in strictosidine synthase (EC:, a key enzyme in alkaloid biosynthesis. It catalyses the Pictet-Spengler stereospecific condensation of tryptamine with secologanin to form strictosidine [PMID: 18081287]. The structure of the native enzyme from the Indian medicinal plant Rauvolfia serpentina (Serpentwood) (Devilpepper) represents the first example of a six-bladed four-stranded beta-propeller fold from the plant kingdom [PMID: 18280746].
