AADAT, also known as aminoadipate aminotransferase, is a vital enzyme involved in the catabolism of lysine, an essential amino acid. Positioned primarily within the mitochondria of cells, AADAT plays a crucial role in the alpha-aminoadipic semialdehyde (alpha-AASA) pathway, which is responsible for the degradation of lysine. One of the key functions of AADAT is its involvement in the conversion of alpha-aminoadipate semialdehyde (alpha-AASA) to alpha-aminoadipate (AAA), a crucial step in lysine degradation. This enzymatic reaction is essential for the disposal of excess lysine and the generation of intermediates that can be utilized in other metabolic pathways. Moreover, AADAT participates in the synthesis...
