MetaCyc Enzyme: arogenate dehydratase

Species: Nicotiana sylvestris

Gene-Reaction Schematic: ?


Enzymatic reaction of: arogenate dehydratase

EC Number: 4.2.1.91

L-arogenate + H+ <=> CO2 + L-phenylalanine + H2O

The reaction direction shown, that is, A + B ↔ C + D versus C + D ↔ A + B, is in accordance with the Enzyme Commission system.

The reaction is favored in the direction shown.

In Pathways: superpathway of phenylalanine and tyrosine biosynthesis , phenylalanine biosynthesis II

Summary:
The enzyme activity of N. silvestris arogenate dehydratase is inhibited by phenylalanine and activated by tyrosine. The maximum activation was observed at 0.25 mM of tyrosine. Zn2+ or Cu2+ at 2.5 mM completely abolished the enzyme activity, and Co2+ reduced the activity by 50%, whereas Mg2+ and Mn2+ had no effects at the same concentration.

The optimum temperature is 32 oC. The optimum pH is between 8.5 and 9.5.

Activators (Allosteric): L-tyrosine [Jung86]

Inhibitors (Unknown Mechanism): L-phenylalanine [Jung86] , Zn2+ [Jung86] , Cu2+ [Jung86] , Co2+ [Jung86]

Primary Physiological Regulators of Enzyme Activity: L-tyrosine , L-phenylalanine
