Gene: Alas1 (aminolevulinic acid synthase 1) Mus musculus
Symbol: Alas1
Name: aminolevulinic acid synthase 1
RGD ID: 68573
Description: Predicted to have 5-aminolevulinate synthase activity and identical protein binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including erythrocyte development; heme biosynthetic process; and hemoglobin biosynthetic process. Localizes to mitochondrion. Is expressed in several structures, including adrenal gland; alimentary system; liver; and male reproductive system. Orthologous to human ALAS1 (5'-aminolevulinate synthase 1); PARTICIPATES IN acute intermittent porphyria pathway; dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase deficiency pathway; dimethylglycine dehydrogenase deficiency pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1,2-dimethylhydrazine; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 17beta-estradiol.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: 5-aminolevulinate synthase, nonspecific, mitochondrial; 5-aminolevulinic acid synthase 1; A; Al; ALAS; Alas-1; Alas-h; ALAS-N; aminolevulinate synthase H; delta-ALA synthase 1; delta-aminolevulinate synthase 1; succinyl-CoA: glycine C-succinyl transferase
