Gene : ALAS2 Homo sapiens

Name  ? 5'-aminolevulinate synthase 2 Cytological Location  Xp11.21
Brief Description  5'-aminolevulinate synthase 2
Description  The product of this gene specifies an erythroid-specific mitochondrially located enzyme. The encoded protein catalyzes the first step in the heme biosynthetic pathway. Defects in this gene cause X-linked pyridoxine-responsive sideroblastic anemia. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been identified.
