2.6.1.77
Description Taurine--pyruvate aminotransferase
Alternative names taurine + pyruvate = L-alanine + 2-sulfoacetaldehyde
Cofactor Pyridoxal-phosphate.
Comments The enzyme from Bilophila wadsworthia catalyzes a reversible reaction that starts an anaerobic taurine degradation pathway.
Hypotaurine (i.e. 2-aminoethanesulfinate) and beta-alanine are also significant donors of an amino group.
Unlike, EC 2.6.1.55, 2-oxoglutarate is not an acceptor of amino groups.
Organisms -Eubacteria
