Accepted name: arogenate dehydrogenase (NADP+)
Reaction: L-arogenate + NADP+ = L-tyrosine + NADPH + CO2

Glossary: L-arogenate = 1-[(2S)-2-amino-2-carboxyethyl]-4-hydroxycyclohexa-2,5-diene-1-carboxylate
Other name(s): arogenic dehydrogenase (ambiguous); pretyrosine dehydrogenase (ambiguous); TyrAAT1; TyrAAT2; TyrAa
Systematic name: L-arogenate:NADP+ oxidoreductase (decarboxylating)
Comments: Arogenate dehydrogenases may utilize NAD+ (EC, NADP+ (EC, or both (EC NADP+-dependent enzymes usually predominate in higher plants.The enzyme from the cyanobacterium Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803 and the TyrAAT1 isoform of the plant Arabidopsis thaliana cannot use prephenate as a substrate, while the Arabidopsis isoform TyrAAT2 can use it very poorly [2,3].
