Pisum sativum : willardiine synthase Inferred from experiment

In Pathway: willardiine and isowillardiine biosynthesis

Supersedes EC number:

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

Most BioCyc compounds have been protonated to a reference pH value of 7.3, and some reactions have been computationally balanced for hydrogen by adding free protons. Please see the PGDB Concepts Guide for more information.

Mass balance status: Balanced.

Enzyme Commission Primary Name: uracilylalanine synthase

Enzyme Commission Synonyms: O3-acetyl-L-serine acetate-lyase (adding uracil), isowillardiine synthase, willardiine synthase, 3-O-acetyl-L-serine:uracil 1-(2-amino-2-carboxyethyl)transferase, O3-acetyl-L-serine:uracil 1-(2-amino-2-carboxyethyl)transferase

Standard Gibbs Free Energy (ΔrG in kcal/mol): -3.5541077 Inferred by computational analysis [Latendresse13]

Enzyme Commission Summary:
The enzyme produces the non-proteinogenic amino acid L-willardiine, which is naturally found in the plants Mariosousa willardiana, Mimosa pigra, and Pisum sativum (pea). The enzyme from Pisum species also produces L-isowillardiine. Not identical with EC, cysteine synthase.
