2.6.1.68
Description Ornithine(lysine) transaminase.
Alternative names L-ornithine:2-oxoglutarate-aminotransferase.
Catalyzed reaction L-ornithine + 2-oxoglutarate = 3,4-dihydro-2H-pyrrole-2-carboxylate + L-glutamate + H2O
Cofactor Pyridoxal-phosphate.
Comments The enzyme from Trichomonas vaginalis also acts on L-lysine, producing 2,3,4,5-tetrahydropyridine-2-carboxylate.
May be identical with Ornithine aminotransferase (EC 2.6.1.11).
Organisms -Metazoa
