EC 2.6.1.94     
Accepted name: 2′-deamino-2′-hydroxyneamine transaminase
Reaction: 2′-deamino-2′-hydroxyneamine + 2-oxoglutarate = 2′-deamino-2′-hydroxy-6′-dehydroparomamine + L-glutamate
Other name(s): kacL (gene name)
Systematic name: 2′-deamino-2′-hydroxyneamine:2-oxoglutarate aminotransferase
Comments: The reaction occurs in vivo in the opposite direction. Involved in the biosynthetic pathway of kanamycin A and kanamycin D. The enzyme, characterized from the bacterium Streptomyces kanamyceticus, can also catalyse EC 2.6.1.93, neamine transaminase.
