Summaries for OPLAH Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for OPLAH Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene acts as a homodimer, using ATP hydrolysis to catalyze the conversion of 5-oxo-L-proline to L-glutamate. Defects in this gene are a cause of 5-oxoprolinase deficiency (OPLAHD). [provided by RefSeq, Jun 2012]

GeneCards Summary for OPLAH Gene
