EC 1.3.1.121     
Accepted name: 4-amino-4-deoxyprephenate dehydrogenase
Reaction: 4-amino-4-deoxyprephenate + NAD+ = 3-(4-aminophenyl)pyruvate + CO2 + NADH + H+
Other name(s): cmlC (gene name); papC (gene name)
Systematic name: 4-amino-4-deoxyprephenate:NAD+ oxidoreductase (decarboxylating)
Comments: The enzyme, characterized from the bacteria Streptomyces venezuelae and Streptomyces pristinaespiralis, participates in the biosynthesis of the antibiotics chloramphenicol and pristinamycin IA, respectively. cf. EC 1.3.1.12, prephenate dehydrogenase.
