Tyrosine Transaminase
MeSH HeadingTyrosine Transaminase
Tree NumberD08.811.913.477.700.900
Annotation/ defic: consider also TYROSINEMIAS
Scope NoteAn enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of L-TYROSINE and 2-oxoglutarate to 4-hydroxyphenylpyruvate and L-GLUTAMATE. It is a pyridoxal-phosphate protein. L-PHENYLALANINE is hydroxylated to L-tyrosine. The mitochondrial enzyme may be identical with ASPARTATE AMINOTRANSFERASES (EC 2.6.1.1.). Deficiency of this enzyme may cause type II Tyrosinemia (see TYROSINEMIAS). EC 2.6.1.5.
Entry TermTyrosine Aminotransferase
