Protein

Kynurenine formamidase

Gene

kynB

Organism
Burkholderia pseudomallei (strain 1710b)
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: -Protein inferred from homologyi

Functioni

Catalyzes the hydrolysis of N-formyl-L-kynurenine to L-kynurenine, the second step in the kynurenine pathway of tryptophan degradation.UniRule annotation

Catalytic activityi

N-formyl-L-kynurenine + H2O = formate + L-kynurenine.UniRule annotation

Pathwayi: L-tryptophan degradation via kynurenine pathway

This protein is involved in step 2 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 (kynA)
  2. Kynurenine formamidase (kynB)
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.
