Saccharomyces cerevisiae (R64-1-1)

Ferulic acid decarboxylase, also active on p-coumaric acid; essential for decarboxylation of aromatic carboxylic acids to corresponding vinyl derivatives; co-overproduction of Pad1p and Fdc1p greatly increases cinnamic acid decarboxylase activity; structure implicates Glu285 as the general base in the nonoxidative decarboxylation reaction catalyzed by Fdc1p; homolog of E. coli UbiD; GFP-fusion protein localizes to cytoplasm [Source:SGD;Acc:S000002947]


Chromosome IV: 1,512,094-1,513,605 forward strand.
