AASS Information: AASS Protein, AASS Antibody and AASS Gene

AASS Protein

AASS protein function

Bifunctional enzyme that catalyzes the first two steps in lysine degradation. The N-terminal and the C-terminal contain lysine-ketoglutarate reductase and saccharopine dehydrogenase activity, respectively.

AASS protein expression

Tissue specificity

Expressed in all 16 tissues examined with highest expression in the liver.


Induced by starvation.
