- Aspartate-prephenate aminotransferase
enzymology, an aspartate-prephenate aminotransferase (EC number|22.214.171.124) is an enzymethat catalyzes the chemical reaction
:L-arogenate + oxaloacetate prephenate + L-aspartate
Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are
L-arogenateand oxaloacetate, whereas its two products are prephenateand L-aspartate.
This enzyme belongs to the family of
transferases, specifically the transaminases, which transfer nitrogenous groups. The systematic name of this enzyme class is L-arogenate:oxaloacetate aminotransferase. Other names in common use include prephenate transaminase (ambiguous), PAT (ambiguous), prephenate aspartate aminotransferase, and L-aspartate:prephenate aminotransferase.
