ENZYME entry: EC 2.6.1.96

Accepted Name
4-aminobutyrate--pyruvate transaminase.
Alternative Name(s)
4-aminobutyrate aminotransferase.
GABA transaminase.
Gamma-aminobutyrate aminotransaminase.
Gamma-aminobutyric acid pyruvate transaminase.
Reaction catalysed
  • 4-aminobutanoate + pyruvate <=> succinate semialdehyde + L-alanine
  • 4-aminobutanoate + glyoxylate <=> succinate semialdehyde + glycine
Cofactor(s)
Pyridoxal 5'-phosphate.
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme is found in plants that do not have the 2-oxoglutarate dependent enzyme (cf. EC 2.6.1.19).
  • The reaction with pyruvate is reversible while the reaction with glyoxylate only takes place in the forward direction.
