Description Alanine aminotransferase
Alternative names Glutamic--alanine transaminase;
Glutamic--pyruvic transaminase;
Catalyzed reaction L-alanine + 2-oxoglutarate = pyruvate + L-glutamate.
Cofactor Pyridoxal-phosphate.
Comments -!- 2-aminobutanoate acts slowly instead of alanine.
Family includes archaeal and bacterial enzymes similar to the prototypical alanine aminotransferase from Pyrococcus furiosus.

Family is composed by eukaryotic enzymes.

Family is based on the the preliminarly characterized YfdZ (AlaC) enzyme from E. coli.
