Name  Aminobutyraldehyde dehydrogenase Short Name  Aminobutyraldehyde_DH
Type  Family Description  Aminobutyraldehyde dehydrogenase functions in the putrescine degradation pathway. It catalyses the oxidation of 4 aminobutyraldehyde to 4 aminobutyrate a neurotransmitter. YdcW encodes gamma-aminobutyraldehyde dehydrogenase (ABALDH) in the wild-type Escherichia coli(strain K12). It is a tetramer and when coupled with YgjG putrescine transaminase in vitro, putrescine was converted into gamma-aminobutyric acid []. The tetramer is composed of identical subunits. The same enzyme from Arthrobacter sp.utilises both NAD+ and NADP+ as coenzymes. It functions optimally at pH 8.0 [].
