Reactions
CO2 + 2-Acetolactate = 2 Pyruvate
Pyruvate + Thiamin diphosphate = CO2 + 2-(alpha-Hydroxyethyl)thiamine diphosphate
CO2 + (S)-2-Acetolactate = 2 Pyruvate
Thiamin diphosphate + 2-Acetolactate = Pyruvate + 2-(alpha-Hydroxyethyl)thiamine diphosphate
Thiamin diphosphate + (S)-2-Acetolactate = Pyruvate + 2-(alpha-Hydroxyethyl)thiamine diphosphate
2-Oxobutanoate + 2-(alpha-Hydroxyethyl)thiamine diphosphate = Thiamin diphosphate + (S)-2-Aceto-2-hydroxybutanoate
Pyruvate + 2-Oxobutanoate = CO2 + (S)-2-Aceto-2-hydroxybutanoate
