Gene: Otc (ornithine transcarbamylase) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Otc
Name: ornithine transcarbamylase
RGD ID: 3236
Description: Enables several functions, including anion binding activity; identical protein binding activity; and ornithine carbamoyltransferase activity. Involved in several processes, including alpha-amino acid metabolic process; response to biotin; and urea cycle. Located in mitochondrial inner membrane. Used to study ornithine carbamoyltransferase deficiency. Biomarker of cholestasis; fatty liver disease; and obesity. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in ornithine carbamoyltransferase deficiency. Orthologous to human OTC (ornithine transcarbamylase); PARTICIPATES IN urea cycle pathway; AGAT deficiency pathway; arginine and proline metabolic pathway; INTERACTS WITH (+)-schisandrin B; 1-naphthyl isothiocyanate; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol.
Type: protein-coding
Previously known as: MGC108742; ornithine carbamoyltransferase; ornithine carbamoyltransferase, mitochondrial; ornithine transcarbamylase, mitochondrial; OTCase
