branched chain aminotransferase 1, cytosolic (BCAT1)
Description: branched chain aminotransferase 1, cytosolic
Orgname: Homo sapiens
OtherAliases: BCT1, DKFZp686E12175, ECA39, MECA39, PNAS-121, PP18
OtherDesignations: branched-chain-amino-acid aminotransferase, cytosolic|placental protein 18
NomenclatureName: branched chain aminotransferase 1, cytosolic
Summary: This gene encodes the cytosolic form of the enzyme branched-chain amino acid transaminase. This enzyme catalyzes the reversible transamination of branched-chain alpha-keto acids to branched-chain L-amino acids essential for cell growth. Two different clinical disorders have been attributed to a defect of branched-chain amino acid transamination: hypervalinemia and hyperleucine-isoleucinemia. As there is also a gene encoding a mitochondrial form of this enzyme, mutations in either gene may contribute to these disorders. [provided by RefSeq]
