Gene: Ahcy (adenosylhomocysteinase) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Ahcy
Name: adenosylhomocysteinase
RGD ID: 69260
Description: Enables NAD binding activity; adenosylhomocysteinase activity; and identical protein binding activity. Involved in several processes, including S-adenosylhomocysteine catabolic process; chronic inflammatory response to antigenic stimulus; and circadian sleep/wake cycle. Predicted to be located in endoplasmic reticulum; melanosome; and nucleus. Predicted to be active in cytosol. Used to study hyperhomocysteinemia and pyridoxine deficiency anemia. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in abdominal aortic aneurysm and hypermethioninemia with deficiency of S-adenosylhomocysteine hydrolase. Orthologous to human AHCY (adenosylhomocysteinase); PARTICIPATES IN methionine cycle/metabolic pathway; choline metabolic pathway; glycine N-methyltransferase deficiency pathway; INTERACTS WITH 17beta-estradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 2,4-dibromophenyl 2,4,5-tribromophenyl ether.
Type: protein-coding
Previously known as: adoHcyase; S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine hydrolase; S-adenosylhomocysteine hydrolase
