Description 2,5-diaminovalerate aminotransferase
Alternative names Diamino-acid aminotransferase.
Catalyzed reaction 2,5-diaminopentanoate + 2-oxoglutarate = 5-amino-2-oxopentanoate + L-glutamate.
Cofactor Pyridoxal-phosphate.
Comments -!- 2,5-diaminoglutarate (???) can act instead of diaminopentanoate.
There may be an error in the EC classification. 2,5-diaminopentanoate is in fact ornithine, so this enzyme should coincide with EC In the original reference, though, the substrates of this activity are 5-aminovalerate and 2,4-diaminoglutarate.
