branched-chain-2-oxoacid decarboxylase activity

Known as: BCKA, branched-chain oxo acid decarboxylase activity, (3S)-3-methyl-2-oxopentanoate carboxy-lyase (2-methylbutanal-forming) 
Catalysis of the reaction: (S)-3-methyl-2-oxopentanoate + H(+) = 2-methylbutanal + CO(2). [EC:4.1.1.72, RHEA:21111]
