PAH phenylalanine hydroxylase that is the rate-limiting step in phenylalanine catabolism. Belongs to the biopterin-dependent aromatic amino acid hydroxylase family. Deficiency of this enzyme activity results in the autosomal recessive disorder phenylketonuria. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
