Reactions known to consume the compound:

prodigiosin biosynthesis :
(S)-3-acetyloctanal + an L-amino acid → 2-methyl-3-n-amyl-dihydropyrrole + a 2-oxo acid + H2O

rhizocticin A and B biosynthesis :
2-keto-4-hydroxy-5-phosphonopentanoate + an L-amino acid → 2-amino-4-hydroxy-5-phosphonopentanoate + a 2-oxo carboxylate
2-keto-5-phosphono-3-cis-pentenoate + an L-amino acidL-2-amino-5-phosphono-3-cis-pentenoate + a 2-oxo carboxylate

Not in pathways:
a N-methyl L-amino acid + oxygen + H2O → an L-amino acid + formaldehyde + hydrogen peroxide
ATP + 2 an L-amino acid → ADP + a dipeptide + phosphate + H+

Reactions known to produce the compound:

γ-glutamyl cycle :
an (γ-L-glutamyl)-L-amino acid → an L-amino acid + 5-oxoproline

Not in pathways:
a polypeptide + H2O → a polypeptide + an L-amino acid
a peptide + H2O → a peptide + an L-amino acid
a peptide + H2O → an L-amino acid + a peptide

Reactions known to both consume and produce the compound:

Not in pathways:
L-alanine + a 2-oxo carboxylate ↔ pyruvate + an L-amino acid

In Reactions of unknown directionality:

Not in pathways:
S-ureidoglycine + a 2-oxo carboxylate = oxalurate + an L-amino acid
an N-carbamoyl-L-amino acid + H2O + 2 H+ = an L-amino acid + ammonium + CO2
an L-amino acid + NAD+ + H2O = a 2-oxo carboxylate + ammonium + NADH + H+
an L-amino acid = a D-amino acid


a 5-L-glutamyl-[peptide] + an amino acid = a 5-L-glutamyl-amino acid + a peptide

In Transport reactions:
