Accepted Name
Diaminobutyrate--2-oxoglutarate transaminase.
Alternative Name(s)
2,4-diaminobutyrate 4-aminotransferase.
DAB aminotransferase.
DABA aminotransferase.
Diaminibutyric acid aminotransferase.
Diaminobutyrate transaminase.
Diaminobutyrate--2-oxoglutarate aminotransferase.
Reaction catalysed
L-2,4-diaminobutanoate + 2-oxoglutarate <=> L-aspartate 4-semialdehyde + L-glutamate
