B6db activities: 2.6.1.15

2.6.1.15
Description Glutamine--pyruvate aminotransferase.
Alternative names Glutaminase II;
Glutamine--oxo-acid transaminase;
Glutamine transaminase L.
Catalyzed reaction L-glutamine + pyruvate = 2-oxoglutaramate + L-alanine.
Cofactor Pyridoxal-phosphate.
Comments -!- L-methionine can act as donor.
-!- Glyoxylate can act as acceptor.
Activity is documented only in mammals. Bacterial sequences identified as 2.6.1.15 in some databanks are misannotated and do not refer to PLP-dependent enzymes.
