Protein

Kynurenine formamidase

Gene

kynB

Organism
Bacillus anthracis
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: -Experimental evidence at protein leveli

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), Tryptophan 2,3-dioxygenase (kynA), Tryptophan 2,3-dioxygenase (kynA), Tryptophan 2,3-dioxygenase (kynA), Tryptophan 2,3-dioxygenase (kynA), Tryptophan 2,3-dioxygenase (kynA), Tryptophan 2,3-dioxygenase (kynA), Tryptophan 2,3-dioxygenase (kynA), Tryptophan 2,3-dioxygenase (kynA), Tryptophan 2,3-dioxygenase (kynA), Tryptophan 2,3-dioxygenase (kynA), Tryptophan 2,3-dioxygenase (kynA), Tryptophan 2,3-dioxygenase (kynA)
  2. Kynurenine formamidase (kynB), Kynurenine formamidase (kynB), Kynurenine formamidase (kynB), Kynurenine formamidase (kynB), Kynurenine formamidase (kynB), Kynurenine formamidase (kynB), Kynurenine formamidase (kynB), Kynurenine formamidase (kynB), Kynurenine formamidase (kynB), Kynurenine formamidase (kynB), Kynurenine formamidase (kynB), Kynurenine formamidase (kynB), Kynurenine formamidase (kynB), Kynurenine formamidase (kynB), 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.
