EC 4.1.1.72 is Orphan !
Common name :Branched-chain-2-oxoacid decarboxylase

Systematic name :(3S)-3-methyl-2-oxopentanoate carboxy-lyase (2-methylbutanal-forming)

Other names :BCKA
Branched-chain alpha-keto acid decarboxylase
Branched-chain keto acid decarboxylase
Branched-chain oxo acid decarboxylase
(3S)-3-methyl-2-oxopentanoate carboxy-lyase
Comments :Acts on a number of 2-oxo acids, with a high affinity toward branched-chain substrates. The aldehyde formed may be enzyme-bound, and may be an intermediate in the bacterial system for the biosynthesis of branched-chain fatty acids.
