Accepted name: aspartate—prephenate aminotransferase
Reaction: L-arogenate + oxaloacetate = prephenate + L-aspartate
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, glutamate—prephenate aminotransferase).
