Official Full Name
L-Phenylalanine decarboxylase
Background
In enzymology, a phenylalanine decarboxylase (EC 4.1.1.53) is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction:L-phenylalanine↔ phenylethylamine + CO2. Hence, this enzyme has one substrate, L-phenylalanine, and two products, phenylethylamine and CO2. This enzyme belongs to the family of lyases, specifically the carboxy-lyases, which cleave carbon-carbon bonds. This enzyme participates in phenylalanine metabolism. It employs one cofactor, pyridoxal phosphate.
Synonyms
