BCKDH E1-alpha The branched-chain alpha-keto dehydrogenase complex catalyzes the overall conversion of alpha-keto acids to acyl-CoA and CO(2). It contains multiple copies of three enzymatic components: branched-chain alpha-keto acid decarboxylase (E1), lipoamide acyltransferase (E2) and lipoamide dehydrogenase (E3). Belongs to the BCKDHA family. 2 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
