Sorry, no etymologies found.
This is done through a process called transamination, which is the transfer of amino groups into other amino acids.
In each of the 19 pathways for the generation of chiral amino acids, the stereochemistry at the α-carbon atom is established by a transamination reaction that involves pyridoxal phosphate.
This increase is probably attributable to the transamination of pyruvate formed by oxidation of the lactic acid produced in the fermentation.
It is thought that the antiepileptic activity of VPA results from a combination of its influence on a number of targets in the central nervous system including inhibition of GABA transamination, reduction of NMDA-mediated neuronal excitation, inhibition of histone deacetylases (HDACs) and glycogen synthase kinase (GSK) -3, and blockade of voltage-gated sodium and T-type calcium channels
It is involved in many reactions, primarily transamination.
The metabolite accumulating in ssadh plants which is linked to the production of ROIs might thus be produced downstream of the GABA-T transamination step.
