ENZYME entry: EC 4.1.1.119

Accepted Name
Phenylacetate decarboxylase.
Reaction catalysed
Phenylacetate <=> toluene + CO(2)
Comment(s)
  • This bacterial enzyme, isolated from anoxic, toluene-producing microbial communities, is a glycyl radical enzyme.
  • It needs to be activated by a dedicated activating enzyme (PhdA).
  • The activase catalyzes the reductive cleavage of AdoMet, producing a 5'-deoxyadenosyl radical that leads to the production of the glycyl radical in PhdB.
