deamination

 [de-am″ĭ-na´shun]
removal of the amino group, -NH2, from a compound.

de·am·i·na·tion

, deaminization (dē-am'i-nā'shŭn, dē-am'i-ni-zā'shŭn),
Removal, usually by hydrolysis, of the NH2 group from an amino compound.

de·am·i·na·tion

, deaminization (dē'am-i-nā'shŭn, dē-am'i-nī-zā'shŭn)
Removal, usually by hydrolysis, of the NH2 group from an amino compound.

deamination

Removal of the amino group from a molecule. When an NH2 group is replaced by an oxygen atom a ketone is formed and the process is described as oxidative deamination. If the amino group is terminal, the process should, strictly, be called deamidation.

deamination

the removal of the amino group (NH2) from a molecule, as in the release of ammonia (NH3) from AMINO ACIDS, the residue of which can then enter the KREBS CYCLE usually via ACETYLCOENZYME A. The amino group then enters the ORNITHINE CYCLE.

de·am·i·na·tion

, deaminization (dē'am-i-nā'shŭn, dē-am'i-nī-zā'shŭn)
Removal, usually by hydrolysis, of the NH2 group from an amino compound.

When insufficient non-protein energy is available in feeds, dietary protein is deaminated in the body to supply energy for metabolism rather than being used for tissue growth, and excreted ammonia can reduce water quality (Phillips 1972, Shyong et al.
During protein synthesis, they "mix" the nitrogen of all dietary components, and even that of deaminated body protein through urea recycling, with the carbon skeletons of all other dietary components (Houpt and Houpt 1968, Macrae and Reeds 1980).
Below a critical pH value, the algae actually begin to release ammonium, not only because fixed carbon is diverted from the TCA cycle to maltose release, but also because amino acids may be deaminated to provide carbon skeletons for maltose synthesis (Rees, 1990).
