Disease relevance of AGT


High impact information on AGT

  • Thus, glyoxylate aminotransferase reactions in plant peroxisomes appear to be catalyzed by at least two distinct types of aminotransferases: an AGT1 homolog with serine:glyoxylate aminotransferase activity (A.H. Liepman, L.J. Olsen [2001] Plant J 25: 487-498), and a pair of closely related, potentially redundant AlaAT homologs with GGT activity [2].
  • We describe the isolation and characterization of an alanine : glyoxylate aminotransferase (AGT1, formerly AGT) cDNA from Arabidopsis thaliana [1].
  • AGT1 had the highest specific activity with the serine : glyoxylate transamination, and apparent Km measurements indicate that this is the preferred in vivo reaction [1].
  • This transition mutation is predicted to result in a proline-to-leucine substitution at residue 251 of AGT1 [1].
