If a protein meets these conditions... i

Common conditions

Special conditions

    • Subsequence at position 39 - 39 aligns to "K" in entry P10724 (individually applies "Proton acceptor; specific for D-alanine")
    • Subsequence at position 39 - 39 aligns to "K" in entry P10724 (individually applies "N6-(pyridoxal phosphate)lysine")
    • Subsequence at position 136 - 136 aligns to "R" in entry P10724 (individually applies "Substrate")
    • Subsequence at position 265 - 265 aligns to "Y" in entry P10724 (individually applies "Proton acceptor; specific for L-alanine")
    • Subsequence at position 312 - 312 aligns to "M" in entry P10724 (individually applies "Substrate; via amide nitrogen")

... then these annotations are applied i

Protein namei

  • Recommended name:
    Alanine racemase (EC:5.1.1.1)

Pathwayi

  • Pathwayi: D-alanine biosynthesis

    This protein is involved in step 1 of the subpathway that synthesizes D-alanine from L-alanine. This subpathway is part of the pathway D-alanine biosynthesis, which is itself part of Amino-acid biosynthesis.

Functioni

  • Catalyzes the interconversion of L-alanine and D-alanine. May also act on other amino acids.

Catalytic activityi

  • L-alanine = D-alanine.

Cofactori

Sequence similaritiesi

Active sitei

  • Proton acceptor; specific for D-alanine (to residues corresponding to position 39)
  • Proton acceptor; specific for L-alanine (to residues corresponding to position 265)

Binding sitei

  • Substrate (to residues corresponding to position 136)
  • Substrate; via amide nitrogen (to residues corresponding to position 312)

Modified residuei

  • N6-(pyridoxal phosphate)lysine (to residues corresponding to position 39)
