B6db families: 2.6.1.28

2.6.1.28
Activity 2.6.1.28
Description Tryptophan--phenylpyruvate aminotransferase
Notes The family has been built around the characterized enzyme from Aspergillus (Emericella) nidulans. This fungal enzyme catalyzes the first step in the synthesis of bioactive alkaloids of the bis-indolylquinone type.

Proteins most similar to those showing 2-aminoadipate aminotransferase activity (family 2.6.1.39_a).
