Protein

Tryptophan synthase alpha chain

Gene

trpA

Organism
Shewanella frigidimarina
Status
Unreviewed-Annotation score: -Experimental evidence at protein leveli

Functioni

The alpha subunit is responsible for the aldol cleavage of indoleglycerol phosphate to indole and glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate.UniRule annotationSAAS annotation

Catalytic activityi

L-serine + 1-C-(indol-3-yl)glycerol 3-phosphate = L-tryptophan + D-glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate + H2O.UniRule annotationSAAS annotation

Pathwayi: L-tryptophan biosynthesis

This protein is involved in step 5 of the subpathway that synthesizes L-tryptophan from chorismate.UniRule annotationSAAS annotation
Proteins known to be involved in the 5 steps of the subpathway in this organism are:
  1. Anthranilate synthase component 1 (AWJ07_14945)
  2. Anthranilate phosphoribosyltransferase (trpD)
  3. Multifunctional fusion protein (trpC)
  4. Multifunctional fusion protein (trpC)
  5. Tryptophan synthase beta chain (trpB), Tryptophan synthase alpha chain (trpA), Tryptophan synthase alpha chain (trpA), Tryptophan synthase beta chain (trpB)
This subpathway is part of the pathway L-tryptophan biosynthesis, which is itself part of Amino-acid biosynthesis.
View all proteins of this organism that are known to be involved in the subpathway that synthesizes L-tryptophan from chorismate, the pathway L-tryptophan biosynthesis and in Amino-acid biosynthesis.
