Alternative Name(s)
Indolamine 2,3-dioxygenase.
Indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase.
L-tryptophan 2,3-dioxygenase.
L-tryptophan pyrrolase.
Tryptamin 2,3-dioxygenase.
Tryptamine 2,3-dioxygenase.
Tryptophan oxygenase.
Tryptophan peroxidase.
Tryptophan pyrrolase.
Tryptophanase.
Reaction catalysed
L-tryptophan + O(2) <=> N-formyl-L-kynurenine
Cofactor(s)
Heme.
Comment(s)
  • Catalyzes, together with EC 1.13.11.52, the first and rate-limiting step in the kynurenine pathway, the major pathway of tryptophan metabolism.
  • Specific for tryptophan as substrate, but is far more active with L-tryptophan than with D-tryptophan.
  • Formerly EC 1.11.1.4 and EC 1.13.1.12.
