2.6.1.55
Activity 2.6.1.55
Description Taurine aminotransferase
Notes Taurine aminotransferases catalyze the first step in taurine catabolism in many taurine-degrading bacteria, and play an important role in bacterial taurine metabolism in the mammalian gut.
Only one functionally validated gene product (from Bifidobacterium kashiwanohense).
Sequences are very similar to those of family pydd (beta-alanine transaminase) and more distantly related to taurine-pyruvate transaminases (family 2.6.1.77).
