Comments [?]

Function Catalyzes the reversible conversion of 3-phosphohydroxypyruvate to phosphoserine and of 3-hydroxy-2-oxo-4-phosphonooxybutanoate to phosphohydroxythreonine.
Catalytic activity O-phospho-L-serine + 2-oxoglutarate = 3-phosphonooxypyruvate + L-glutamate.
4-phosphonooxy-L-threonine + 2-oxoglutarate = (3R)-3-hydroxy-2-oxo-4-phosphonooxybutanoate + L-glutamate.
Cofactor pyridoxal 5'-phosphate
Note: Binds 1 pyridoxal phosphate per subunit.
Pathway Amino-acid biosynthesis; L-serine biosynthesis; L-serine from 3-phospho-D-glycerate; step 2/3.
case not <OC:Firmicutes>
end case
Subunit Homodimer.
Subcellular location Cytoplasm.
Similarity Belongs to the class-V pyridoxal-phosphate-dependent aminotransferase family. SerC subfamily.

Comments SerC is not involved in pyridoxine biosynthesis in B.subtilis, and probably also in other Firmicutes. In these organisms, pyridoxal phosphate biosynthesis is achieved by an alternative pathway involving pdxS(yaaD) and pdxT(yaaE). SerC from Mycobacterium species are slightly divergent and could have a different activity.
