FunctionCatalyzes the reversible transamination between alanine and 2-oxoglutarate to form pyruvate and glutamate. Participates in cellular nitrogen metabolism and also in liver gluconeogenesis starting with precursors transported from skeletal muscles.
Tissue specificityLiver, kidney, heart, and skeletal muscles. Expressed at moderate levels in the adipose tissue.
PathwayAmino-acid degradation; L-alanine degradation via transaminase pathway; pyruvate from L-alanine: step 1/1.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the class-I pyridoxal-phosphate-dependent aminotransferase family. Alanine aminotransferase subfamily.
