IUBMB Comments

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, (S)-3-amino-2-methylpropionate transaminase, provide a route for interconversion of the enantiomers of 3-amino-2-methylpropanoate.

The expected taxonomic range for this enzyme is: Bacteria, Eukaryota

Synonyms
d-3-aminoisobutyrate-pyruvate aminotransferase, d-baib aminotransferase, more
