Of course a transaminase enzyme, or more generally any enzyme that catalyzes transformations using pyridoxal or pyridoxamine, consists of more than a binding site. It is of interest to add the extra catalytic groups used by such enzymes into our artificial enzyme systems. In transamination, a critical catalytic group is the basic group of the enzyme that removes a proton from one carbon atom and transfers it to another carbon atom. There is reasonable evidence that such transfers do occur with a single basic group, which in transamination must remove the proton from the CH2 group of the pyridoxamine unit and move the proton to the a carbon of the product amino acid (Fig.
