FAMILY
DESCRIPTION
Also known as GLYA_PYRCJ, glyA. Catalyzes the reversible interconversion of serine and glycine with a modified folate serving as the one-carbon carrier. Also exhibits a pteridine-independent aldolase activity toward beta-hydroxyamino acids, producing glycine and aldehydes, via a retro-aldol mechanism. Homodimer.
