Gene: GGT1 (gamma-glutamyltransferase 1) Homo sapiens
Symbol: GGT1
Name: gamma-glutamyltransferase 1
RGD ID: 735681
Description: Exhibits glutathione hydrolase activity; leukotriene-C(4) hydrolase; and peptidyltransferase activity. Involved in carboxylic acid metabolic process; glutathione catabolic process; and zymogen activation. Localizes to plasma membrane. Implicated in gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase deficiency. Biomarker of several diseases, including biliary atresia; diabetes mellitus (multiple); diabetic neuropathy; fatty liver disease (multiple); and liver disease (multiple).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
