Other name(s): phosphoribosyl-anthranilate pyrophosphorylase; PRT; anthranilate 5-phosphoribosylpyrophosphate phosphoribosyltransferase; anthranilate phosphoribosylpyrophosphate phosphoribosyltransferase; phosphoribosylanthranilate pyrophosphorylase; phosphoribosylanthranilate transferase; anthranilate-PP-ribose-P phosphoribosyltransferase
Systematic name: N-(5-phospho-D-ribosyl)-anthranilate:diphosphate phospho-α-D-ribosyltransferase
Comments: In some organisms, this enzyme is part of a multifunctional protein together with one or more other components of the system for biosynthesis of tryptophan [EC (indole-3-glycerol-phosphate synthase), EC (anthranilate synthase), EC (tryptophan synthase) and EC (phosphoribosylanthranilate isomerase)].
