Accepted Name
Phosphinomethylmalate isomerase.
Reaction catalysed
Phosphinomethylmalate <=> phosphinomethylisomalate
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme, characterized from the bacterium Streptomyces viridochromogenes, is involved in bialaphos biosynthesis.
  • The enzyme from the bacterium Kitasatospora phosalacinea participates in the biosynthesis of the related compound phosalacine.
  • Both compounds contain the nonproteinogenic amino acid L-phosphinothricin that acts as a potent inhibitor of EC 6.3.1.2.
  • The similar enzyme EC 4.2.1.3 cannot catalyze this reaction.
