- Fluorothreonine transaldolase
enzymology, a fluorothreonine transaldolase (EC number|22.214.171.124) is an enzymethat catalyzes the chemical reaction
:L-threonine + fluoroacetaldehyde acetaldehyde + 4-fluoro-L-threonine
Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are
L-threonineand fluoroacetaldehyde, whereas its two products are acetaldehydeand 4-fluoro-L-threonine.
This enzyme belongs to the family of
transferases, specifically those transferring aldehydeor ketonic groups (transaldolases and transketolases, respectively). The systematic name of this enzyme class is fluoroacetaldehyde:L-threonine aldehydetransferase.
