Description Acetyl-CoA 4-amino-L-phenylalanine C-2 acyltransferase (decarboxylating) (2.3.1.-)
Alternative names PapD (gene name);
Catalyzed reaction Acetyl-CoA + 4-amino-L-phenylalanine = 3-amino-4-(4-aminophenyl)-2-butanone (APB) + CoA + CO(2).
Cofactor Pyridoxal-phosphate.
An amino acid C-acyltransferase.

In Pseudomonas fluorescens SBW 25, this enzyme is possibly part of a pathway for the enzymatic synthesis of pyrazine derivatives from natural α-amino acids.
