Gene: Bcat1 (branched chain aminotransferase 1, cytosolic) Mus musculus
Symbol: Bcat1
Name: branched chain aminotransferase 1, cytosolic
Description: Exhibits branched-chain-amino-acid transaminase activity. Involved in branched-chain amino acid catabolic process. Localizes to the cytosol. Is expressed in several structures, including craniocervical region bone; limb; nervous system; sensory organ; and tooth. 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; 17beta-estradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: BCAT(c); BCATc; branched-chain-amino-acid aminotransferase, cytosolic; Eca39
