Definition Phenylalanine hydroxylase (EC i Phenylalanine hydroxylase (EC is an enzyme which catalyses the reaction responsible for the addition of a hydroxyl group to the end of the 6-carbon aromatic ring of phenylalanine, such that it becomes tyrosine. Phenylalanine hydroxylase is the rate-limiting enzyme of the metabolic pathway which degrades excess phenylalanine. The PAH gene or a 1:1 ortholog thereof encodes for phenylalanine hydroxylase. eof encodes for phenylalanine hydroxylase.
