Taurine dehydrogenase Wikipedia
In enzymology, a taurine dehydrogenase (EC 126.96.36.199) is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction
taurine + H2
O + acceptor
sulfoacetaldehyde + NH3
+ reduced acceptor
The 3 substrates of this enzyme are taurine, H2O, and acceptor, whereas its 3 products are sulfoacetaldehyde, NH3, and reduced acceptor.
This enzyme belongs to the family of oxidoreductases, specifically those acting on the CH-NH2 group of donors with other acceptors. The systematic name of this enzyme class is taurine:acceptor oxidoreductase (deaminating). This enzyme is also called taurine:(acceptor) oxidoreductase (deaminating). This enzyme participates in nitrogen metabolism.
