Accepted name: phosphoribosylanthranilate isomerase
Reaction: N-(5-phospho-β-D-ribosyl)anthranilate = 1-(2-carboxyphenylamino)-1-deoxy-D-ribulose 5-phosphate
Other name(s): PRA isomerase; PRAI; IGPS:PRAI (indole-3-glycerol-phosphate synthetase/N-5′-phosphoribosylanthranilate isomerase complex); N-(5-phospho-β-D-ribosyl)anthranilate ketol-isomerase
Systematic name: N-(5-phospho-β-D-ribosyl)anthranilate aldose-ketose-isomerase
Comments: In some organisms, this enzyme is part of a multifunctional protein, together with one or more other components of the system for the biosynthesis of tryptophan [EC (anthranilate phosphoribosyltransferase), EC (indole-3-glycerol-phosphate synthase), EC (anthranilate synthase) and EC (tryptophan synthase)].
