IUBMB Comments
Studies of the enzyme from the bacterium Escherichia coli have shown that the reaction can be divided into three consecutive steps: Schiff base formation between pyruvate and an active-site lysine, the addition of L-aspartate-semialdehyde, and finally transimination leading to cyclization with simultaneous dissociation of the product.
