Mutase-Prephenate Dehydratase, Chorismate
Prephenate Hydro lyase
Prephenate hydro-lyase (decarboxylating)
An enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of prephenate to phenylpyruvate with the elimination of water and carbon dioxide. In the enteric bacteria this enzyme also possesses chorismate mutase activity, thereby catalyzing the first two steps in the biosynthesis of phenylalanine. EC 18.104.22.168.
