Comments [?]

Function Catalyzes the cleavage of L-kynurenine (L-Kyn) and L-3-hydroxykynurenine (L-3OHKyn) into anthranilic acid (AA) and 3-hydroxyanthranilic acid (3-OHAA), respectively.
Catalytic activity RHEA:16813: H2O + L-kynurenine = anthranilate + H(+) + L-alanine
EC 3.7.1.3
RHEA:25143: 3-hydroxy-L-kynurenine + H2O = 3-hydroxyanthranilate + H(+) + L-alanine
case <FTTag:PLP>
end case
Pathway Amino-acid degradation; L-kynurenine degradation; L-alanine and anthranilate from L-kynurenine: step 1/1.
Cofactor biosynthesis; NAD(+) biosynthesis; quinolinate from L-kynurenine: step 2/3.
Subunit Homodimer.
Similarity Belongs to the kynureninase family.
