The conversion of L-tyrosine to 4-hydroxyphenylpyruvate by an aminotransferase is a common reaction, found in most organisms. In some organisms it is part of degradative pathways (as in L-tyrosine degradation I) while in others it is part of biosynthetic pathways (as in plastoquinol-9 biosynthesis I).
4-hydroxyphenylpyruvate is an central precursor, which is used for the synthesis of primary metabolites such as plastoquinone-9 and vitamin E, both important quinones found in all oxygenic photosynthetic organisms, as well as secondary metabolites, such as rosmarinate.
