Gene: AGXT (alanine--glyoxylate and serine--pyruvate aminotransferase) Homo sapiens
Symbol: AGXT
Name: alanine--glyoxylate and serine--pyruvate aminotransferase
Description: This gene is expressed only in the liver and the encoded protein is localized mostly in the peroxisomes, where it is involved in glyoxylate detoxification. Mutations in this gene, some of which alter subcellular targetting, have been associated with type I primary hyperoxaluria. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: AGT; AGT1; AGXT1; alanine--glyoxylate aminotransferase; alanine-glyoxylate aminotransferase; hepatic peroxisomal alanine:glyoxylate aminotransferase; L-alanine: glyoxylate aminotransferase 1; PH1; serine--pyruvate aminotransferase; serine-pyruvate aminotransferase; serine:pyruvate aminotransferase; SPAT; SPT; TLH6
