KAT2/AADAT Information: KAT2/AADAT Protein, KAT2/AADAT Antibody and KAT2/AADAT Gene

KAT2/AADAT Protein

KAT2/AADAT protein function

Transaminase with broad substrate specificity. Has transaminase activity towards aminoadipate, kynurenine, methionine and glutamate. Shows activity also towards tryptophan, aspartate and hydroxykynurenine. Accepts a variety of oxo-acids as amino-group acceptors, with a preference for 2-oxoglutarate, 2-oxocaproic acid, phenylpyruvate and alpha-oxo-gamma-methiol butyric acid. Can also use glyoxylate as amino-group acceptor (in vitro).

KAT2/AADAT protein expression

Tissue specificity

Higher expression in the liver. Also found in heart, brain, kidney, pancreas, prostate, testis and ovary.
