EC 1.13.11.29

Accepted name: stizolobate synthase

Reaction: L-dopa + O2 = 4-(L-alanin-3-yl)-2-hydroxy-cis,cis-muconate 6-semialdehyde

Glossary: L-dopa = 3,4-dihydroxy-L-phenylalanine

Systematic name: 3,4-dihydroxy-L-phenylalanine:oxygen 4,5-oxidoreductase (recyclizing)

Comments: The intermediate product undergoes ring closure and oxidation, with NAD(P)+ as acceptor, to stizolobic acid. The enzyme requires Zn2+.
