a reversible reaction whereby an amino group is transferred from an alpha amino acid to an alpha keto acid.
The enzymatic transfer of an amino group from an amino acid to another carbon chain.
the process of transposing an amino group within a chemical compound
the process of transfering an amino group from one compound to another
the process by which an amino group from one amino acid is transferred to a carbon compound to form a new amino acid.
Transamination (or aminotransfer) is the reaction between an amino acid and an alpha-keto acid. The amino group is transferred from the former to the latter; this results in the amino acid being converted to the corresponding Î±-keto acid, while the reactant Î±-keto acid is converted to the corresponding amino acid (if the amino group is removed from an amino acid, an Î±-keto acid is left behind).
