Description [amino group carrier protein]-γ-(L-lysyl)-L-glutamate aminotransferase
Alternative names [2-aminoadipate carrier protein]-aminoadipate semialdehyde/glutamate semialdehyde transaminase;
Catalyzed reaction an [amino group carrier protein]-C-terminal-γ-(L-lysyl)-L-glutamate + 2-oxoglutarate = an [amino group carrier protein]-C-terminal-N-(1-carboxy-5-oxopentan-1-yl)-L-glutamine + L-glutamate
Cofactor Pyridoxal-phosphate.
Comments The enzyme participates in an L-lysine biosynthesis pathway in certain species of archaea and bacteria.
In Thermus aquaticus, the 2-aminoadipate carrier protein is termed LysW.
