beta-Alanine-oxoglutarate aminotransferase (beta-AlaAT I) and beta-alanine-pyruvate aminotransferase (beta-AlaAT II) catalyze the transamination reaction of omega-amino acids such as beta-alanine, beta-aminoisobutyrate, and gamma-aminobutyrate, amino acids that are not protein constituents. The influence of dietary protein levels on the expression and activities of these enzymes was investigated by using male rats. Both beta-AlaAT I and beta-AlaAT II activities in the liver were increased with… Expand
