GLUD2 gene

glutamate dehydrogenase 2

The information on this page was automatically extracted from online scientific databases.

From NCBI Gene:

The protein encoded by this gene is localized to the mitochondrion and acts as a homohexamer to recycle glutamate during neurotransmission. The encoded enzyme catalyzes the reversible oxidative deamination of glutamate to alpha-ketoglutarate. This gene is intronless.[provided by RefSeq, Jan 2010]

From UniProt:

Important for recycling the chief excitatory neurotransmitter, glutamate, during neurotransmission.
