Description Diaminobutyrate--pyruvate aminotransferase
Alternative names L-diaminobutyric acid transaminase.
Catalyzed reaction L-2,4-diaminobutanoate + pyruvate = L-aspartate 4-semialdehyde + L-alanine.
Cofactor Pyridoxal-phosphate.
Comments -!- Differs from EC, diaminobutyrate-2-oxoglutarate transaminase, because this enzyme uses pyruvate as the preferred amino-group acceptor.
The few enzymes annotated in the databases (e.g. BRENDA) as diaminobutyrate-pyruvate aminotransferase can be better classified as, diaminobutyrate-2-oxoglutarate transaminase.
Organisms -Eubacteria
