Reaction: (S)-3,5-dihydroxyphenylglycine + 2-oxoglutarate = 2-(3,5-dihydroxyphenyl)-2-oxoacetate + L-glutamate
Glossary: (S)-3,5-dihydroxyphenylglycine = (2S)-2-amino-2-(3,5-dihydroxyphenyl)acetic acid
Other name(s): HpgT
Systematic name: (S)-3,5-dihydroxyphenylglycine:2-oxoglutarate aminotransferase
Comments: A pyridoxal-5′-phosphate protein. The enzyme from the bacterium Amycolatopsis orientalis catalyses the reaction in the reverse direction as part of the biosynthesis of the (S)-3,5-dihydroxyphenylglycine constituent of the glycopeptide antibiotic chloroeremomycin.
