Although many investigations have been carried out on the n-amino acid oxidase since its discovery in 1935 (2)) the metabolic role of this enzyme remains somewhat obscure. It is generally believed, on the basis of indirect evidence, that in animals the enzyme functions in the inversion of exogenous n-amino acids over the pathway n-amino acid --+ Lu-keto acid -+ L-amino acid (3). The first step is assumed to be catalyzed by the n-amino acid oxidase, the second by a transaminase. Other functions… CONTINUE READING
