Other name(s): hydroxyphenylpyruvate synthase; chorismate mutaseprephenate dehydrogenase
Systematic name: prephenate:NAD+ oxidoreductase (decarboxylating)
Comments: This enzyme in the enteric bacteria also possesses chorismate mutase activity (EC 184.108.40.206 chorismate mutase) and converts chorismate into prephenate.
