serine_decarboxylase
Description Serine decarboxylase (4.1.1.-)
Alternative names L-serine decarboxylase.
Catalyzed reaction L-serine = ethanolamine + CO(2).
Cofactor Pyridoxal-phosphate.
In plants, serine decarboxylation appears to be the main source of ethanolamine.
Serine decarboxylation appears to occur in Plasmodium, also.
Organisms -Plants
