Reactions known to consume the compound:

Not in pathways:
a D-amino acid + oxygen + H2O → ammonium + hydrogen peroxide + a 2-oxo carboxylate
a D-amino acid[in] + an electron-transfer-related quinone[CCO-OUT-CCO-IN] + H2O[in] → a 2-oxo carboxylate[in] + ammonium[in] + an electron-transfer-related quinol[CCO-OUT-CCO-IN]

Reactions known to produce the compound:

Not in pathways:
a protein with N-terminal D-amino acid + H2O → a peptide + a D-amino acid
a D-aminoacyl-tRNA + H2O → a D-amino acid + a tRNA + 2 H+

In Reactions of unknown directionality:

Not in pathways:
an L-amino acid = a D-amino acid
an N-acylated-D-amino acid + H2O = a D-amino acid + a carboxylate
an N-carbamoyl D-amino acid + H+ + H2O = a D-amino acid + ammonium + CO2
acetyl-CoA + a D-amino acid = an N-acetyl-D-amino acid + coenzyme A + H+


a 5-L-glutamyl-[peptide] + an amino acid = a 5-L-glutamyl-amino acid + a peptide

In Redox half-reactions:
a 2-oxo carboxylate[in] + ammonium[in] + 2 H+[in] + 2 e-a D-amino acid[in] + H2O[in]
