Gene : AGXT2 Homo sapiens

Name  ? alanine--glyoxylate aminotransferase 2 Cytological Location  5p13.2
Brief Description  alanine--glyoxylate aminotransferase 2
Description  The protein encoded by this gene is a class III pyridoxal-phosphate-dependent mitochondrial aminotransferase. It catalyzes the conversion of glyoxylate to glycine using L-alanine as the amino donor. It is an important regulator of methylarginines and is involved in the control of blood pressure in kidney. Polymorphisms in this gene affect methylarginine and beta-aminoisobutyrate metabolism, and are associated with carotid atherosclerosis. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants.
