Comments [?]

Function 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.
Catalytic activity RHEA:21020: 5-O-(1-carboxyvinyl)-3-phosphoshikimate = chorismate + phosphate
EC 4.2.3.5
Cofactor FMNH2
Note: Reduced FMN (FMNH(2)).
Pathway Metabolic intermediate biosynthesis; chorismate biosynthesis; chorismate from D-erythrose 4-phosphate and phosphoenolpyruvate: step 7/7.
case <OC:Bacteria>
Subunit Homotetramer.
end case
Similarity Belongs to the chorismate synthase family.
