DESCRIPTION
Also known as VDH_STRA4, vdh. Oxidative deamination of branched-chain amino acids. Oxidizes L-valine and L-alpha-aminobutyric acid efficiently, and L-alanine and L-isoleucine less efficiently. D-valine and L-glutamate were not substrates for the enzyme. The catabolism of valine is the major source of fatty acid precursors for macrolide biosynthesis and a vital source of antibiotic precursors. Homodimer.
