The direction shown, i.e. which substrates are on the left and right sides, is in accordance with the Enzyme Commission system.

Most BioCyc compounds have been protonated to a reference pH value of 7.3. Please see the PGDB Concepts Guide for more information.

Mass balance status: Balanced.

Enzyme Commission Primary Name: 3-amino-5-hydroxybenzoate synthase

Enzyme Commission Synonyms: AHBA synthase, rifK (gene name)

Standard Gibbs Free Energy (ΔrG in kcal/mol): -12.581127Inferred by computational analysis [Latendresse13]

Enzyme Commission Summary:
A pyridoxal 5'-phosphate enzyme. The enzyme from the bacterium Amycolatopsis mediterranei participates in the pathway for rifamycin B biosynthesis. The enzyme also functions as a transaminase earlier in the pathway, producing UDP-α-D-kanosamine [Floss11].
