Gene: Bcat2 (branched chain aminotransferase 2, mitochondrial) Mus musculus
Analyze
Symbol: Bcat2
Name: branched chain aminotransferase 2, mitochondrial
RGD ID: 69003
Description: Exhibits branched-chain-amino-acid transaminase activity. Involved in branched-chain amino acid metabolic process; cellular response to leukemia inhibitory factor; and regulation of hormone levels. Localizes to mitochondrion. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; genitourinary system; nervous system; respiratory system; and sensory organ. Used to study maple syrup urine disease. Orthologous to human BCAT2 (branched chain amino acid transaminase 2); PARTICIPATES IN valine, leucine and isoleucine biosynthetic pathway; valine, leucine and isoleucine degradation pathway; pantothenic acid metabolic pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1,1-dichloroethene; 1,2-dimethylhydrazine; 4-hydroxyphenyl retinamide.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: BCAT(m); Bcat-; Bcat-2; branched-chain-amino-acid aminotransferase, mitochondrial; Eca4; Eca40
