  IntEnz view ENZYME view


DE   Phosphinomethylmalate isomerase.
CA   Phosphinomethylmalate = phosphinomethylisomalate.
CC   -!- The enzyme, characterized from the bacterium Streptomyces
CC       viridochromogenes, is involved in bialaphos biosynthesis.
CC   -!- The enzyme from the bacterium Kitasatospora phosalacinea participates
CC       in the biosynthesis of the related compound phosalacine.
CC   -!- Both compounds contain the nonproteinogenic amino acid
CC       L-phosphinothricin that acts as a potent inhibitor of EC
CC   -!- The similar enzyme EC cannot catalyze this reaction.
