EC 2.6.1.116     
Accepted name: 6-aminohexanoate aminotransferase
Reaction: 6-aminohexanoate + 2-oxoglutarate = 6-oxohexanoate + L-glutamate
Other name(s): nylD (gene name)
Systematic name: 6-aminohexanoate:2-oxogutarate aminotransferase
Comments: The enzyme, characterized from the bacterium Arthrobacter sp. KI72, participates in the degradation of nylon-6. Glyoxylate can serve as an alternative amino group acceptor with similar efficiency.
