ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
3,4-dihydroxyphenylalanine oxidative deaminase.
Alternative Name(s)
DOPA oxidative deaminase.
Oxidative deaminase.
Reaction catalysed
2 L-dopa + O(2) <=> 2 3,4-dihydroxyphenylpyruvate + 2 NH(3)
  • One of the three enzymes involved in L-dopa (3,4- dihydroxyphenylalanine) catabolism in the non-oxygenic phototrophic bacterium Rubrivivax benzoatilyticus OU5 (and not Rhodobacter sphaeroides OU5 as had been thought), the other two being EC and EC
  • In addition to DOPA, the enzyme can also use L-tyrosine, L-phenylalanine, L-tryptophan and glutamate as substrate, but more slowly.
  • Inhibited by NADH and 2-oxoglutarate.
