Gene: OAT (ornithine aminotransferase) Homo sapiens
Symbol: OAT
Name: ornithine aminotransferase
Description: Predicted to have ornithine-oxo-acid transaminase activity and pyridoxal phosphate binding activity. Involved in protein hexamerization. Localizes to the mitochondrion and nucleoplasm. Implicated in gyrate atrophy.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: DKFZp781A11155; GACR; gyrate atrophy; HOGA; OATASE; OKT; ornithine aminotransferase, mitochondrial; ornithine delta-aminotransferase; ornithine--oxo-acid aminotransferase; ornithine-delta-aminotransferase; ornithine-oxo-acid aminotransferase; testicular tissue protein Li 130
