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 only archaeal enzymes similar to the prototypical alanine aminotransferase from Pyrococcus furiosus.

Family is composed by eukaryotic enzymes.
