Protein

Tryptophan 2,3-dioxygenase

Gene

v

Organism
Drosophila melanogaster (Fruit fly)
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: Annotation score: 5 out of 5-Experimental evidence at protein leveli

Functioni

Catalyzes the oxidative cleavage of the L-tryptophan (L-Trp) pyrrole ring (By similarity). Required during larval growth to control the level of potentially harmful free tryptophan in the hemolymph. In the adult the same reaction is the first step in the ommochrome biosynthetic pathway.UniRule annotation1 Publication

Catalytic activityi

L-tryptophan + O2 = N-formyl-L-kynurenine.UniRule annotation

Cofactori

hemeUniRule annotationNote: Binds 2 heme groups per tetramer.UniRule annotation

Pathwayi: L-tryptophan degradation via kynurenine pathway

This protein is involved in step 1 of the subpathway that synthesizes L-kynurenine from L-tryptophan.UniRule annotation
Proteins known to be involved in the 2 steps of the subpathway in this organism are:
  1. Tryptophan 2,3-dioxygenase (v)
  2. Kynurenine formamidase (KFase), Kynurenine formamidase (KFase)
This subpathway is part of the pathway L-tryptophan degradation via kynurenine pathway, which is itself part of Amino-acid degradation.
View all proteins of this organism that are known to be involved in the subpathway that synthesizes L-kynurenine from L-tryptophan, the pathway L-tryptophan degradation via kynurenine pathway and in Amino-acid degradation.

Pathwayi: ommochrome biosynthesis

Links to similar proteins from the UniProt Reference Clusters (UniRef) at 100%, 90% and 50% sequence identity:
100%UniRef100 combines identical sequences and sub-fragments with 11 or more residues from any organism into one UniRef entry.
90%UniRef90 is built by clustering UniRef100 sequences that have at least 90% sequence identity to, and 80% overlap with, the longest sequence (a.k.a seed sequence).
50%UniRef50 is built by clustering UniRef90 seed sequences that have at least 50% sequence identity to, and 80% overlap with, the longest sequence in the cluster.
