B6db families: a
Description L-methionine transaminase (family a)
Notes Family composed solely of plant enzymes (beloging to the fold type IV group) based on the functionally validated sequence from Arabidopsis.
The Arabidopsis enzyme apparently represents a specialized form of branched-chain amino acid transaminase, acting in the biosynthesis of methionine-derived glucosinolates.
