Accepted name: 2-aminohexanoate transaminase
Reaction: L-2-aminohexanoate + 2-oxoglutarate = 2-oxohexanoate + L-glutamate
Other name(s): norleucine transaminase; norleucine (leucine) aminotransferase; leucine L-norleucine: 2-oxoglutarate aminotransferase
Systematic name: L-2-aminohexanoate:2-oxoglutarate aminotransferase
Comments: A pyridoxal-phosphate protein. Also acts on L-leucine and, more slowly, on L-isoleucine, L-2-aminopentanoate and L-aspartate.
