ENZYME entry: EC 2.6.1.21

Accepted Name
D-amino-acid transaminase.
Alternative Name(s)
D-alanine aminotransferase.
D-alanine transaminase.
D-alanine-D-glutamate transaminase.
D-amino acid aminotransferase.
D-amino acid transaminase.
D-aspartate aminotransferase.
D-aspartate transaminase.
D-aspartic aminotransferase.
Reaction catalysed
D-alanine + 2-oxoglutarate <=> pyruvate + D-glutamate
Cofactor(s)
Pyridoxal 5'-phosphate.
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme from thermophilic Bacillus species acts on many D-amino acids with D-alanine and D-2-aminobutyrate as the best amino donors.
  • It can similarly use any of several 2-oxo acids as amino acceptor, with 2-oxoglutarate and 2-oxobutyrate among the best.
  • The enzyme from some other sources has a broader specificity.
  • Formerly EC 2.6.1.10.
