Cover for Alanine aminotransferase: amino acid metabolism in higher plants.

Alanine aminotransferase (AlaAT, EC 2.6.1.2) catalyses the reversible transfer of an amino group from alanine (Ala) to 2-oxoglutarate to form pyruvate and glutamate. AlaAT is a pyridoxal phosphate-dependent enzyme that serves as the main route of alanine biosynthesis and degradation. This chapter...
