Accepted name: glutamate—prephenate aminotransferase
Reaction: L-arogenate + 2-oxoglutarate = prephenate + L-glutamate

Other name(s): prephenate transaminase (ambiguous); PAT (ambiguous); L-glutamate:prephenate aminotransferase
Systematic name: L-arogenate:2-oxoglutarate aminotransferase
Comments: A pyridoxal-phosphate protein. Aspartate can also act as the amino donor, but more slowly (cf. EC, aspartate—prephenate aminotransferase). The enzyme from higher plants shows a marked preference for prephenate as substrate compared to pyruvate, phenylpyruvate or 4-hydroxyphenylpyruvate [1].
