Fluorothreonine transaldolase

Fluorothreonine transaldolase

In enzymology, a fluorothreonine transaldolase (EC number| is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction

:L-threonine + fluoroacetaldehyde ightleftharpoons acetaldehyde + 4-fluoro-L-threonine

Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are L-threonine and fluoroacetaldehyde, whereas its two products are acetaldehyde and 4-fluoro-L-threonine.

This enzyme belongs to the family of transferases, specifically those transferring aldehyde or ketonic groups (transaldolases and transketolases, respectively). The systematic name of this enzyme class is fluoroacetaldehyde:L-threonine aldehydetransferase.
