D-AIBAT.
D-beta-aminoisobutyrate:pyruvate aminotransferase.
Reaction catalysed
(R)-3-amino-2-methylpropanoate + pyruvate <=> 2-methyl-3-oxopropanoate + L-alanine
Comment(s)
  • The two enantiomers of the 2-methyl-3-oxopropanoate formed by the enzyme interconvert by enolization, so that this enzyme, together with EC 2.6.1.22, provide a route for interconversion of the enantiomers of 3-amino-2-methylpropanoate.
  • Formerly EC 2.6.1.61.
