deamination by enzymes that uses flavin or pyridine nucleotides (such as FAD or NAD+).

oxidative deamination

a deamination that also involves an oxidation, for example, an alpha amino acid to an alpha keto acid.


pertaining to or emanating from oxidation.

oxidative deamination
oxidative breakdown of amino acids; specialized enzyme systems carry out the process, e.g. d-amino oxidase.
oxidative metabolism
enzymic pathways leading to the addition of oxygen or removal of hydrogen from intermediates in the pathway.
oxidative phosphorylation
the mitochondrial process by which the free energy from the oxidation of intracellular substrates is made available in the form of ATP for cellular endergonic processes.

GDH catalyses the reversible reaction of oxidative deamination of glutamate to a-ketoglutarate and ammonia (Begum and Vijayaraghavan 1998) and plays an important role in the catabolism and biosynthesis of amino acids.
Because L-glutamate oxidase (LGOX ) is an enzyme that specifically catalyzes the oxidative deamination of L-glutamate in the presence of water and oxygen with the formation of a-ketoglutarate ammonia and hydrogen peroxide [3 4] we determined the enzyme activity by measuring ammonium ions released as a result of glutamate oxidase enzymatic reaction.
Catecholamines in the neuronal cytoplasm normally undergo enzymatic oxidative deamination catalyzed by monoamine oxidase to form catecholaldehydes, which are cytotoxic, as predicted by Blaschko more than a half century ago (7).
