Glutamate is a key molecule in cellular metabolism.
In humans, dietary proteins are broken down by digestion into amino acids, which serves as metabolic fuel or other functional roles in the body.
A key process in amino acid degradation is transamination, in which the amino group of an amino acid is transferred to an α-ketoacid, typically catalysed by a transaminase.
