||L-serine ammonia-lyase (family a)
||The validated serine ammonia-lyases come from fungi and animals; accordingly, the family is constituted by fungal and metazoan proteins only (although some very similar bacterial sequences can be found in databases).
Note that, in some bacteria, the deamination of L-Ser is carried out by L-threonine ammonia lyase (EC 22.214.171.124) and the corresponding enzymes have been included in that family.
Note also that some bacteria possess PLP-independent L-serine ammonia-lyases.
