This allows BCAT isozymes to quickly respond to changes in tissue concentrations of substrate or product, which allows BCAAs to be an ideal reserve for both carbon skeletons and nitrogen for glutamate synthesis. However, this near equilibrium status also means that for the reaction to proceed, rather than cycle between BCAAs and BCKAs, BCKAs must be eliminated. This can occur via simple removal from the cell which is not typical as demonstrated by the exceptionally low circulating levels of BCKAs in the serum [19].
