Comments [?]

Function The alpha subunit is responsible for the aldol cleavage of indoleglycerol phosphate to indole and glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate.
Catalytic activity L-serine + 1-C-(indol-3-yl)glycerol 3-phosphate = L-tryptophan + D-glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate + H(2)O.
Pathway Amino-acid biosynthesis; L-tryptophan biosynthesis; L-tryptophan from chorismate: step 5/5.
Subunit Tetramer of two alpha and two beta chains.
case <OG:Chloroplast>
Subcellular location Plastid, chloroplast.
end case
Similarity Belongs to the TrpA family.
