Glutamic acid dehydrogenases

Glutamic acid dehydrogenases --> glutamate dehydrogenases

enzymes that catalyze the reaction of l-glutamate, h2o, and NAD_ (or NADP_ in some cases) producing alpha-ketoglutarate (2-oxoglutarate), ammonia, and NADH; in mammals, this is the prime contributor to oxidative deamination.

Synonym: glutamic acid dehydrogenases.
