IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
EC 2.6.1.57

Names

Accepted name:
aromatic-amino-acid transaminase
Other names:
ArAT
aromatic amino acid aminotransferase
aromatic aminotransferase
Systematic name:
aromatic-amino-acid:2-oxoglutarate aminotransferase

Reactions

Cofactor

Comments:

A pyridoxal-phosphate protein. L-Methionine can also act as donor, but more slowly; oxaloacetate can act as acceptor. Controlled proteolysis converts the enzyme into EC 2.6.1.1 aspartate transaminase.
