ENZYME entry: EC 2.6.1.86

Accepted Name
2-amino-4-deoxychorismate synthase.
Alternative Name(s)
2-amino-2-deoxyisochorismate synthase.
ADIC synthase.
Reaction catalysed
(2S)-2-amino-4-deoxychorismate + L-glutamate <=> chorismate + L-glutamine
Cofactor(s)
Magnesium.
Comment(s)
  • The reaction occurs in the reverse direction to that shown above.
  • In contrast to most anthranilate-synthase I (ASI) homologs, this enzyme is not inhibited by tryptophan.
  • In Streptomyces globisporus, the sequential action of this enzyme and EC 1.3.99.24, 2-amino-4-deoxychorismate dehydrogenase, leads to the formation of the benzoxazolinate moiety of the enediyne antitumor antibiotic C-1027.
  • In certain Pseudomonads the enzyme participates in the biosynthesis of phenazine, a precursor for several compounds with antibiotic activity.
