ENZYME entry: EC 4.1.1.109

Accepted Name
Phenylacetaldehyde synthase.
Reaction catalysed
L-phenylalanine + O(2) + H(2)O <=> phenylacetaldehyde + CO(2) + NH(3) + H(2)O(2)
Cofactor(s)
Pyridoxal 5'-phosphate.
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme, isolated from the the plants Petunia hybrida and a Rosa hybrid, catalyzes the production of phenylacetaldehyde directly from L-phenylalanine.
  • The enzyme is specific for L-phenylalanine and does not accept other aromatic amino acids as substrates.
