Description Threonine ammonia-lyase
Alternative names Threonine dehydratase;
L-threonine dehydratase;
Threonine dehydrase;
L-threonine deaminase;
L-threonine hydro-lyase (deaminating);
Threonine deaminase;
L-serine dehydratase;
Serine deaminase.
Catalyzed reaction L-threonine = 2-oxobutanoate + NH(3).
Cofactor Pyridoxal-phosphate.
Comments -!- The protein from P. putida does not require pyridoxal-phosphate.
-!- The enzyme from a number of sources also acts on L-serine, cf. EC
-!- The reaction catalyzed probably involves initial elimination of water (hence the enzyme's original classification as EC, followed by isomerization and hydrolysis of the product with C-N bond breakage.
-!- Formerly EC
Biodegradative threonine deaminase from Salmonella is dimeric, but apparently it becomes tetrameric (dimer of dimers) in the presence of the allosteric effectors AMP or CMP.
Prosite PROSITE; PDOC00149;
