Description Sulfinoalanine decarboxylase
Notes The mammalian sequences in this family are strictly related to those of metazoan glutamate decarboxylases (

The insect enzymes (e.g., the one from Aedes egypti) also possess a substantial aspartate 1-decarboxylase activity and are often annotated as Aspartate 1-decarboxylases.
