- Aspartate-phenylpyruvate transaminase
enzymology, an aspartate-phenylpyruvate transaminase (EC number|184.108.40.206) is an enzymethat catalyzes the chemical reaction
:L-aspartate + phenylpyruvate oxaloacetate + L-phenylalanine
Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are
L-aspartateand phenylpyruvate, whereas its two products are oxaloacetateand L-phenylalanine.
This enzyme belongs to the family of
transferases, specifically the transaminases, which transfer nitrogenous groups. The systematic name of this enzyme class is L-aspartate:phenylpyruvate aminotransferase. This enzyme is also called aspartate-phenylpyruvate aminotransferase.
CAS registry numberfor this enzyme class is CAS registry|99533-45-6."
