Protein Product
putative phenylacrylic acid decarboxylase FDC1
Feature Type
ORF , Verified
Description
Ferulic acid decarboxylase; involved in the decarboxylation of aromatic carboxylic acids such as phenylacrylic (cinnamic) acid, ferulic acid and coumaric acid and formation of the corresponding vinyl derivatives; overexpression of both Pad1p and Fdc1p increases decarboxylase activity due to the Pad1p-catalyzed formation of a diffusible cofactor required for Fdc1p activity; homolog of E. coli UbiD; GFP-fusion protein localizes to the cytoplasm in an HTP study 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
EC Number
4.1.1.102
