Description Tryptophan synthase
Notes The family comprises only the beta subunits of bacterial, archaeal and plant enzymes. The alpha subunits are not PLP-dependent. In the case of fungal enzymes, which are fusion proteins (alpha+beta), the domain corresponding to the alpha subunit has been removed from the sequence.
