IUBMB Comments
This is a pyridoxal-phosphate-dependent enzyme that acts in concert with EC 1.1.1.103, L-threonine 3-dehydrogenase, in the degradation of threonine to form glycine . This threonine degradation pathway is common to prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells and the two enzymes involved form a complex .
