IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name:
cephalosporin-C transaminase
Other names:
cephalosporin C aminotransferase
L-alanine:cephalosporin-C aminotransferase
Systematic name:
cephalosporin-C:2-oxoglutarate aminotransferase



A number of D-amino acids, including D-alanine, D-aspartate and D-methionine can also act as amino-group donors. Although this enzyme acts on several free D-amino acids, it differs from EC, D-amino acid transaminase, in that it can use cephalosporin C as an amino donor.
