Accepted name: (S)-ureidoglycine—glyoxylate transaminase
Reaction: (S)-ureidoglycine + glyoxylate = N-carbamoyl-2-oxoglycine + glycine
Glossary: (S)-ureidoglycine = (2S)-(carbamoylamino)glycine
Other name(s): (S)-ureidoglycine—glyoxylate aminotransferase; UGXT; PucG
Systematic name: (S)-ureidoglycine:glyoxylate aminotransferase
Comments: A pyridoxal 5′-phosphate protein. The protein, found in bacteria, can use other amino-group acceptors, but is specific for (S)-ureidoglycine.
