IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name:
2-amino-4-deoxychorismate dehydrogenase
Other names:
ADIC dehydrogenase
2-amino-2-deoxyisochorismate dehydrogenase
Systematic name:
(2S)-2-amino-4-deoxychorismate:FMN oxidoreductase



The sequential action of EC, 2-amino-4-deoxychorismate synthase and this enzyme leads to the formation of the benzoxazolinate moiety of the enediyne antitumour antibiotic C-1027 [1,2].
