tryptophan 5-monooxygenase activity

Known as: tryptophan hydroxylase activity, tryptophan 5-hydroxylase activity, L-tryptophan,tetrahydrobiopterin:oxygen oxidoreductase (5-hydroxylating) 
Catalysis of the reaction: L-tryptophan + tetrahydrobiopterin + O2 = 5-hydroxy-L-tryptophan + 4-alpha-hydroxytetrahydrobiopterin + H2O. [EC:1.14.16.4…
