Function: Catalyzes the irreversible transamination of the L- tryptophan metabolite L-kynurenine to form kynurenic acid (KA). Plays a key role in amino acid metabolism. Important for metabolite exchange between mitochondria and cytosol. Facilitates cellular uptake of long-chain free fatty acids.
Catalytic activity: L-aspartate + 2-oxoglutarate = oxaloacetate + L-glutamate. L-kynurenine + 2-oxoglutarate = 4-(2- aminophenyl)-2,4-dioxobutanoate + L-glutamate.
Cellular location: Mitochondrion matrix. Cell membrane. Note=Exposure to alcohol promotes translocation to the cell membrane.
