Gene: DAO (D-amino acid oxidase) Homo sapiens
Symbol: DAO
Name: D-amino acid oxidase
Description: Exhibits D-amino-acid oxidase activity; FAD binding activity; and protein dimerization activity. Involved in alpha-amino acid catabolic process and dopamine biosynthetic process. Localizes to the cytosol and peroxisomal membrane. Colocalizes with the mitochondrial outer membrane.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: D-amino-acid oxidase; DAAO; DAMOX; MGC35381; OXDA
