DESCRIPTION
Also known as HGD_RHOPT, hmgA. Involved in the catabolism of homogentisate (2,5-dihydroxyphenylacetate or 2,5-OH-PhAc), a central intermediate in the degradation of phenylalanine and tyrosine. Catalyzes the oxidative ring cleavage of the aromatic ring of homogentisate to yield maleylacetoacetate. Hexamer; dimer of trimers.
