Protein

Primary amine oxidase

Gene

tynA

Organism
Escherichia coli (strain K12)
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: Annotation score: 5 out of 5-Experimental evidence at protein leveli

Functioni

The enzyme prefers aromatic over aliphatic amines.

Catalytic activityi

RCH2NH2 + H2O + O2 = RCHO + NH3 + H2O2.3 Publications
2-phenylethylamine + H2O + O2 = phenylacetaldehyde + NH3 + H2O2.1 Publication

Cofactori

Protein has several cofactor binding sites:

Enzyme regulationi

Inhibited by 2-hydrazinopyridine.1 Publication

Pathwayi: L-phenylalanine degradation

This protein is involved in step 2 of the subpathway that synthesizes phenylacetate from L-phenylalanine.
Proteins known to be involved in the 3 steps of the subpathway in this organism are:
  1. no protein annotated in this organism
  2. Primary amine oxidase (tynA)
  3. Phenylacetaldehyde dehydrogenase (feaB)
This subpathway is part of the pathway L-phenylalanine degradation, 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 phenylacetate from L-phenylalanine, the pathway L-phenylalanine degradation and in Amino-acid degradation.

Caution

When highly overexpressed there can be substoichiometric amounts of TPQ in the enzyme; this may be due to imperfect conversion of tyrosine to TPQ (see PubMed:8647101).Curated

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.
