The degradation of L-threonine to glycine consists of atwo-step biochemical pathway involving the enzymes L-threoninedehydrogenase and 2-amino-3-ketobutyrate coenzyme A ligase.L-Threonine is first converted into 2-amino-3-ketobutyrate byL-threonine dehydrogenase. This gene encodes the second enzyme inthis pathway, which then catalyzes the reaction between2-amino-3-ketobutyrate and coenzyme A to form glycine andacetyl-CoA. The encoded enzyme is considered a class IIpyridoxal-phosphate-dependent aminotransferase. Alternate splicingresults in multiple transcript variants. A pseudogene of this geneis found on chromosome 14.
