Reaction: L-arogenate + oxaloacetate = prephenate + L-aspartate
For diagram of reaction click here, or click here (mechanism).
Other name(s): prephenate transaminase (ambiguous); PAT (ambiguous); prephenate aspartate aminotransferase; L-aspartate:prephenate aminotransferase
Systematic name: L-arogenate:oxaloacetate aminotransferase
Comments: A pyridoxal-phosphate protein. Glutamate can also act as the amino donor, but more slowly (cf. EC 126.96.36.199, glutamateprephenate aminotransferase).
