Summaries for DCXR Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for DCXR Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene acts as a homotetramer to catalyze diacetyl reductase and L-xylulose reductase reactions. The encoded protein may play a role in the uronate cycle of glucose metabolism and in the cellular osmoregulation in the proximal renal tubules. Defects in this gene are a cause of pentosuria. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.[provided by RefSeq, Aug 2010]

GeneCards Summary for DCXR Gene

DCXR (Dicarbonyl/L-Xylulose Reductase) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with DCXR include pentosuria and acute inflammation of lacrimal passage. Among its related pathways are Metabolism and Glycosaminoglycan metabolism. GO annotations related to this gene include oxidoreductase activity and oxidoreductase activity, acting on NAD(P)H, quinone or similar compound as acceptor. An important paralog of this gene is DECR2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for DCXR Gene

  • Catalyzes the NADPH-dependent reduction of several pentoses, tetroses, trioses, alpha-dicarbonyl compounds and L-xylulose. Participates in the uronate cycle of glucose metabolism. May play a role in the water absorption and cellular osmoregulation in the proximal renal tubules by producing xylitol, an osmolyte, thereby preventing osmolytic stress from occurring in the renal tubules.
