Ethanolamine ammonia-lyase

Ethanolamine ammonia-lyase

In enzymology, an ethanolamine ammonia-lyase (EC number|4.3.1.7) is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction

:ethanolamine ightleftharpoons acetaldehyde + NH3

Hence, this enzyme has one substrate, ethanolamine, and two products, acetaldehyde and NH3.

This enzyme belongs to the family of lyases, specifically ammonia lyases, which cleave carbon-nitrogen bonds. The systematic name of this enzyme class is ethanolamine ammonia-lyase (acetaldehyde-forming). This enzyme is also called ethanolamine deaminase. This enzyme participates in glycerophospholipid metabolism. It employs one cofactor, cobamide.

tructural studies

As of late 2007, only one structure has been solved for this class of enzymes, with the PDB accession code PDB link|2QEZ.
