One of the mysteries of the English language finally explained.

- ‘Leucine, isoleucine, and valine are branched essential amino acids that are catabolized to corresponding keto acids through the process of transamination.’
- ‘Glutamate is also a principal amino donor to other amino acids in subsequent transamination reactions.’
- ‘The earliest enzymatic functions are mostly linked to amino acid catabolism: deamination, transamination, and decarboxylation.’

- ‘The key organic acid, 2-oxoglutarate, is mainly derived from sugar respiration and amino acid transamination reactions.’
