Direct generic reaction:
DL-allothreonine ↔ acetaldehyde + glycine (4.1.2.-)
Enzyme Commission Primary Name for 18.104.22.168: low-specificity L-threonine aldolase
Enzyme Commission Synonyms for 22.214.171.124: LtaE
Enzyme Commission Primary Name for 126.96.36.199: L-allo-threonine aldolase
Enzyme Commission Summary for 188.8.131.52:
Requires pyridoxal phosphate. The low-specificity L-threonine aldolase can act on both L-threonine and L-allo-threonine [Yamada70, Kumagai72]. The enzyme from Escherichia coli can also act on L-threo-phenylserine and L-erythro-phenylserine [Liu98]. The enzyme can also catalyse the aldol condensation of glycolaldehyde and glycine to form 4-hydroxy-L-threonine, an intermediate of pyridoxal phosphate biosynthesis [Liu97]. Different from EC 184.108.40.206, L-threonine aldolase, and EC 220.127.116.11, L-allo-threonine aldolase.
Enzyme Commission Summary for 18.104.22.168:
Requires pyridoxal phosphate. This enzyme, characterized from the bacterium Aeromonas jandaei, is specific for L-allo-threonine and can not act on either L-threonine or L-serine. Different from EC 22.214.171.124, L-threonine aldolase, and EC 126.96.36.199, low-specificity L-threonine aldolase. A previously listed enzyme with this name, EC 188.8.131.52, was deleted in 1971 after it was found to be identical to EC 184.108.40.206, glycine hydroxymethyltransferase.
Instance reaction of [DL-allothreonine ↔ acetaldehyde + glycine] (4.1.2.-):
i1: L-allo-threonine ↔ glycine + acetaldehyde (220.127.116.11/18.104.22.168)
