  1. Alanine dehydrogenase

    Alanine dehydrogenase is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction++ The 3 substrates of this enzyme are L-alanine, water, and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide+, whereas its 4 products are pyruvate, ammonia, NADH, and hydrogen ion. This enzyme belongs to the family of oxidoreductases, specifically those acting on the CH-NH2 group of donors with NAD+ or NADP+ as acceptor. The systematic name of this enzyme class is L-alanine:NAD+ oxidoreductase. Other names in common use include AlaDH, L-alanine dehydrogenase, NAD+-linked alanine dehydrogenase, alpha-alanine dehydrogenase, NAD+-dependent alanine dehydrogenase, alanine oxidoreductase, and NADH-dependent alanine dehydrogenase. This enzyme participates in taurine and hypotaurine metabolism and reductive carboxylate cycle.

U.S. National Library of Medicine

  1. Alanine Dehydrogenase

    An NAD-dependent enzyme that catalyzes the reversible DEAMINATION of L-ALANINE to PYRUVATE and AMMONIA. The enzyme is needed for growth when ALANINE is the sole CARBON or NITROGEN source. It may also play a role in CELL WALL synthesis because L-ALANINE is an important constituent of the PEPTIDOGLYCAN layer.
