Function
Tryptophan dimethylallyltransferase; part of the gene cluster that mediates the biosynthesis of fumiclavanine C, a fungal ergot alkaloid (PubMed:15933009, PubMed:23435153, PubMed:26972831). DmaW catalyzes the first step of ergot alkaloid biosynthesis by condensing dimethylallyl diphosphate (DMAP) and tryptophan to form 4-dimethylallyl-L-tryptophan (PubMed:15870460, PubMed:23435153). The second step is catalyzed by the methyltransferase easF that methylates 4-dimethylallyl-L-tryptophan in the presence of S-adenosyl-L-methionine, resulting in the formation of 4-dimethylallyl-L-abrine (By similarity). The catalase easC and the FAD-dependent oxidoreductase easE then transform 4-dimethylallyl-L-abrine to chanoclavine-I which is further oxidized by EasD in the presence of NAD(+), resulting in the formation of chanoclavine-I aldehyde (PubMed:20039019, PubMed:20526482, PubMed:21409592). EasA reduces chanoclavine-I aldehyde to dihydrochanoclavine-I aldehyde that spontaneously dehydrates to form 6,8-dimethyl-6,7-didehydroergoline (PubMed:20526482). EasG then catalyzes the reduction of 6,8-dimethyl-6,7-didehydroergoline to form festuclavine (PubMed:20526482). Hydrolysis of festuclavine by easM then leads to the formation of fumigaclavine B which is in turn acetylated by easN to fumigaclavine A (PubMed:26972831). Finally, easL catalyzes the conversion of fumigaclavine A into fumigaclavine C by attaching a dimethylallyl moiety to C-2 of the indole nucleus (PubMed:19672909). UniProt

Data origin/color codes
The vertical color bar on the left side indicates data provenance.
Data in green originates from UniProtKB  
Variation data (sourced from UniProt) shows non-genetic variation from the ExPASy   and dbSNP   websites.
Data in yellow originates from Pfam  , by interacting with the HMMER3 web site  
Data in purple originates from Phosphosite  .
Data in orange originates from the SCOP   (version 1.75) and SCOPe   (version 2.04) classifications.
Data in grey has been calculated using BioJava  . Protein disorder predictions are based on JRONN (Troshin, P. and Barton, G. J. unpublished), a Java implementation of RONN  
  • Red: potentially disorderd region
  • Blue: probably ordered region.
Hydropathy has been calculated using a sliding window of 15 residues and summing up scores from standard hydrophobicity tables.
  • Red: hydrophobic
  • Blue: hydrophilic.
Data in lilac represent the genomic exon structure projected onto the UniProt sequence.
Data in blue originates from PDB

Sequence Mismatches It is now possible to see information about expression tags, cloning artifacts, and many other details related to sequence mismatches.
Icons represent a number of different sequence modifications that can be observed in PDB files. For example the 'T' icon T represents expression tags that have been added to the sequence. The 'E' icon E represents an engineered mutation. However, besides these two, there are many other icons. For more information about the meaning and exact position of a sequence modification, move the cursor over the icon.
