ENZYME entry: EC 1.14.16.4

Accepted Name
Tryptophan 5-monooxygenase.
Alternative Name(s)
Indoleacetic acid-5-hydroxylase.
L-tryptophan hydroxylase.
Tryptophan 5-hydroxylase.
Tryptophan hydroxylase.
Reaction catalysed
L-tryptophan + tetrahydrobiopterin + O(2) <=> 5-hydroxy-L-tryptophan + 4a-hydroxytetrahydrobiopterin
Cofactor(s)
Fe cation.
Comment(s)
  • Activated by phosphorylation, catalyzed by a Ca(2+)-activated protein kinase.
  • The 4a-hydroxytetrahydrobiopterin formed can dehydrate to 6,7- dihydrobiopterin, both spontaneously and by the action of EC 4.2.1.96.
  • The 6,7-dihydrobiopterin can be enzymically reduced back to tetrahydrobiopterin, by EC 1.5.1.34, or slowly rearranges into the more stable compound 7,8-dihydrobiopterin.
