B6db activities: hpgt.aminotransferase

Description L-4-hydroxyphenylglycine aminotransferase (2.6.1.-).
Alternative names L-p-hydroxyphenylglycine transaminase.
Catalyzed reaction 4-hydroxyphenylglyoxylate + L-tyrosine = L-4-hydroxyphenylglycine + 4-hydroxyphenylpyruvate
Cofactor Pyridoxal-phosphate.
The enzyme serves to the production of 4-hydroxyphenylglycine, a component of some bioactive peptides formed by non-ribosomal synthesis.

Enzymes with this activity have been described in Amycolatopsis orientalis (intervening in the synthesis of chloroeremomycin) and Streptomyces lavendulae (synthesis of complestatin). They do not use D-p-hydroxyphenylglycine as a substrate and thus are totally distinct from EC
