Description Ureidoglycine--glyoxylate aminotransferase (2.6.1.-)
Catalyzed reaction Ureidoglycine + glyoxylate = oxalurate + glycine
Cofactor Pyridoxal phosphate.
Comments -!- Can also use several keto acids (e.g., 2-oxoglutarate) as amino-group acceptors.
In certain bacteria, the catalyzed reaction is part of the urate degradation pathway.
Organisms -Eubacteria
