ENZYME entry: EC 5.1.1.18

Accepted Name
Serine racemase.
Reaction catalysed
L-serine <=> D-serine
Cofactor(s)
Pyridoxal 5'-phosphate.
Comment(s)
  • Highly selective for L-serine as substrate.
  • D-serine is found in type-II astrocytes in mammalian brain, where it appears to be an endogenous ligand of the glycine site of N-methyl-D- aspartate (NMDA) receptors.
  • The reaction can also occur in the reverse direction but does so more slowly at physiological serine concentrations.
