The human mitochondrial and cytosolic branched chain aminotransferases (hBCATm and hBCATc, respectively) are key metabolic enzymes that catalyse the reversible transamination of the nutritionally essential branched-chain amino acids. Both isozymes have a conserved redox active CXXC motif, unique among the mammalian aminotransferases. In the present study the effect of ^S-nitrosylation, iS-thiolation or disulphide bond formation on the functionality of the BCAT proteins was investigated.
