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...

Cover for Tyrosine aminotransferase.

In plants, the pyridoxal-5′-phosphate (PLP)-dependent enzyme tyrosine aminotransferase (EC 2.6.15) is involved in the interconversion of tyrosine and 4-hydoxyphenylpyruvate, and phenylalanine and phenylpyruvate. Tyrosine and phenylalanine are amino acids that are ubiquitously involved in protein...
