Gene: Bcat1 (branched chain amino acid transaminase 1) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Bcat1
Name: branched chain amino acid transaminase 1
RGD ID: 2195
Description: Exhibits branched-chain-amino-acid transaminase activity and identical protein binding activity. Predicted to be involved in branched-chain amino acid catabolic process; leucine biosynthetic process; and valine biosynthetic process. Localizes to cytoplasm. Orthologous to human BCAT1 (branched chain amino acid transaminase 1); PARTICIPATES IN 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-CoA lyase deficiency pathway; 3-hydroxyisobutyric aciduria pathway; 3-methylcrotonyl CoA carboxylase 1 deficiency pathway; INTERACTS WITH 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 3,3',4,4',5-pentachlorobiphenyl; 6-propyl-2-thiouracil.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: BCAT(c); Bcatc; branched chain amino acid transaminase 1, cytosolic; branched chain aminotransferase 1, cytosolic; branched-chain-amino-acid aminotransferase, cytosolic; MGC105472
