2.6.1.13 a
Activity 2.6.1.13
Description Ornithine--oxo-acid aminotransferase (family a)
Notes The enzyme from Penicillium chrysogenum employs as substrates both L-ornithine (yielding L-glutamate 5-semialdehyde) and L-lysine (yielding L-aminoadipate semialdehyde). The latter reaction is important for the biosynthesis of penicillin. Given its structural similarity to classic ornithine aminotransferases, and its preference for alpha-ketoglutarate as an amino acceptor, we have included the enzyme from Penicillium in the 2.6.1.13 family, rather than among L-lysine aminotransferases (EC 2.6.1.36) or omega-amino acid--pyruvate aminotransferases (EC 2.6.1.18).
