  IntEnz view ENZYME view

ENZYME: 4.2.1.166


ID   4.2.1.166
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 6.3.1.2.
CC   -!- The similar enzyme EC 4.2.1.3 cannot catalyze this reaction.
