Family

Low specificity L-threonine aldolase (IPR026273)

Short name: Low_specificity_L-TA

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships

None.

Description

Proteins in this family catalyze the cleavage of L-allo-threonine and L-threonine to glycine and acetaldehyde. The protein from Pseudomonas sp. strain NCIMB 10558 has also been shown to act on L-erythro-phenylserine, L-threo-phenylserine, L-beta-3,4-methylenedioxyphenylserine and L-beta-3,4-dihydroxyphenylserine [PMID: 9464392].
