IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
EC 2.5.1.80

Names

Accepted name:
7-dimethylallyltryptophan synthase
Other name:
7-DMATS
Systematic name:
dimethylallyl-diphosphate:L-tryptophan 7-dimethylallyltransferase

Reaction

Comments:

This enzyme is more flexible towards the aromatic substrate than EC 2.5.1.34 (4-dimethylallyltryptophan synthase), but similar to that enzyme, accepts only dimethylallyl diphosphate as the prenyl donor.
