Annotation score:3 out of 5

<p>The annotation score provides a heuristic measure of the annotation content of a UniProtKB entry or proteome. This score <strong>cannot</strong> be used as a measure of the accuracy of the annotation as we cannot define the ‘correct annotation’ for any given protein.<p><a href='/help/annotation_score' target='_top'>More...</a></p>
-Protein inferred from homologyi <p>This indicates the type of evidence that supports the existence of the protein. Note that the ‘protein existence’ evidence does not give information on the accuracy or correctness of the sequence(s) displayed.<p><a href='/help/protein_existence' target='_top'>More...</a></p>

Catalyzes the anti-1,4-elimination of the C-3 phosphate and the C-6 proR hydrogen from 5-enolpyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate (EPSP) to yield chorismate, which is the branch point compound that serves as the starting substrate for the three terminal pathways of aromatic amino acid biosynthesis. This reaction introduces a second double bond into the aromatic ring system.UniRule annotation

<p>This subsection of the ‘Function’ section provides information relevant to cofactors. A cofactor is any non-protein substance required for a protein to be catalytically active. Some cofactors are inorganic, such as the metal atoms zinc, iron, and copper in various oxidation states.

This protein is involved in step 7 of the subpathway that synthesizes chorismate from D-erythrose 4-phosphate and phosphoenolpyruvate.UniRule annotation
Proteins known to be involved in the 7 steps of the subpathway in this organism are:
  1. Phospho-2-dehydro-3-deoxyheptonate aldolase (cgR_1083), Phospho-2-dehydro-3-deoxyheptonate aldolase (cgR_2060)
  2. 3-dehydroquinate synthase (aroB)
  3. 3-dehydroquinate dehydratase (aroQ)
  4. Quinate/shikimate dehydrogenase (NAD(+)) (aroE)
  5. Shikimate kinase (aroK)
  6. 3-phosphoshikimate 1-carboxyvinyltransferase (aroA)
  7. Chorismate synthase (aroC)
This subpathway is part of the pathway chorismate biosynthesis, which is itself part of Metabolic intermediate biosynthesis.
View all proteins of this organism that are known to be involved in the subpathway that synthesizes chorismate from D-erythrose 4-phosphate and phosphoenolpyruvate, the pathway chorismate biosynthesis and in Metabolic intermediate biosynthesis.

<p>The checksum is a form of redundancy check that is calculated from the sequence. It is useful for tracking sequence updates.</p> <p>It should be noted that while, in theory, two different sequences could have the same checksum value, the likelihood that this would happen is extremely low.</p> <p>However UniProtKB may contain entries with identical sequences in case of multiple genes (paralogs).</p> <p>The checksum is computed as the sequence 64-bit Cyclic Redundancy Check value (CRC64) using the generator polynomial: x<sup>64</sup> + x<sup>4</sup> + x<sup>3</sup> + x + 1.
