Description Alanine aminotransferase (family c)
Notes A group of enzymes based on the poorly characterized product of the E. coli gene yfdZ. The sequences are related to families involved in the transamination of diaminopimelate (, and of aromatic amino acids (e.g.,
The enzyme from Aphanothece is indeed a promicuous catalyst acting also on diaminopimelate.
