IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name:
phenylalanine(histidine) transaminase
Other names:
L-phenylalanine(L-histidine):pyruvate aminotransferase
histidine:pyruvate aminotransferase
phenylalanine (histidine) aminotransferase
phenylalanine(histidine):pyruvate aminotransferase
phenylalanine(histidine) aminotransferase
Systematic name:
L-phenylalanine:pyruvate aminotransferase



L-Histidine and L-tyrosine can act instead of L-phenylalanine; in the reverse reaction, L-methionine, L-serine and L-glutamine can replace L-alanine.
