Table 1 Gene families for cyclohexadienyl mutase

From: The emerging periplasm-localized subclass of AroQ chorismate mutases, exemplified by those from Salmonella typhimurium and Pseudomonas aeruginosa

  Class I* Class II*
Subclass Function Acronym Function Acronym
Chorismate AroQ Chorismate AroH
  mutase   mutase  
  Isochorismate PchB

  4-deoxy-    
  chorismate    
  mutase    
Chorismate AroR   
  mutase    
  1. *Class I and Class II specify independent homology groups (analogs). Chorismate mutases are shown in bold. In view of the closely related tertiary structures of the Saccharomyces cerevisiae chorismate mutase and the E. coli AroQ domain of AroQPheA [9], the placement of AroR within class I is consistent with the suggestion of MacBeath et al. [8].
