Comment(s)
  • Member of the aromatic amino acid lyase family, other members of which are EC 4.3.1.3, EC 4.3.1.24 and EC 4.3.1.25.
  • Far more active with tyrosine than with phenylalanine as substrate, but the substrate specificity can be switched by mutation of a single amino acid (H89F) in the enzyme from the bacterium Rhodobacter sphaeroides.
  • Formerly EC 4.3.1.5.
