Accepted name: L-lysine 6-transaminase
Reaction: L-lysine + 2-oxoglutarate = (S)-2-amino-6-oxohexanoate + L-glutamate
Glossary: (S)-2-amino-6-oxohexanoate = L-2-aminoadipate 6-semialdehyde = L-allysine
L-1-piperideine 6-carboxylate = (S)-2,3,4,5-tetrahydropyridine-2-carboxylate = (S)-1,6-didehydropiperidine-2-carboxylate
Other name(s): lysine 6-aminotransferase; lysine ε-aminotransferase; lysine ε-transaminase; lysine:2-ketoglutarate 6-aminotransferase; L-lysine-α-ketoglutarate aminotransferase; L-lysine-α-ketoglutarate 6-aminotransferase
Systematic name: L-lysine:2-oxoglutarate 6-aminotransferase
Comments: A pyridoxal-phosphate protein. The product (L-allysine) is converted into the intramolecularly dehydrated form, (S)-2,3,4,5-tetrahydropyridine-2-carboxylate.
