glutamate dehydrogenases

(redirected from glutamic acid dehydrogenases)

glu·ta·mate de·hy·dro·gen·as·es

enzymes that catalyze the reaction of l-glutamate, H2O, and NAD+ (or NADP+ in some cases) producing α-ketoglutarate (2-oxoglutarate), ammonia, and NADH; in mammals, this is the prime contributor to oxidative deamination.
