TREH gene

trehalase

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

From NCBI Gene:

This gene encodes an enzyme that hydrolyses trehalose, a disaccharide formed from two glucose molecules found mainly in fungi, plants, and insects. A partial duplication of this gene is located adjacent to this locus on chromosome 11. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.

From UniProt:

Intestinal trehalase is probably involved in the hydrolysis of ingested trehalose.

From NCBI Gene:

  • alpha, alpha-Trehalase deficiency

From UniProt:

Deficiency of TREH results in isolated trehalose intolerance that causes gastrointestinal symptoms after ingestion of edible mushrooms.
