Description Alanine aminotransferase (family a)
Notes This family includes archaeal enzymes, similar to the prototypical alanine aminotransferase from Pyrococcus furiosus, and enzymes from bacteria, like the rather broad-specificity AlaT from C. glutamicum and the preliminarly characterized AlaA from E. coli.
