Description Amino-acid racemase.
Catalyzed reaction An L-amino acid = a D-amino acid.
Cofactor Pyridoxal-phosphate.
The occasional genes annotated with this function in public databases are either non-PLP dependent racemases, or non-validated PLP enzymes resembling alanine racemase (family or serine racemase (family
