GeneCards Summary for PDHA2 Gene
PDHA2 (Pyruvate Dehydrogenase (Lipoamide) Alpha 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Central carbon metabolism in cancer and Carbon metabolism. GO annotations related to this gene include oxidoreductase activity, acting on the aldehyde or oxo group of donors, disulfide as acceptor and pyruvate dehydrogenase (acetyl-transferring) activity. An important paralog of this gene is BCKDHA.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for PDHA2 Gene
The pyruvate dehydrogenase complex catalyzes the overall conversion of pyruvate to acetyl-CoA and CO(2), and thereby links the glycolytic pathway to the tricarboxylic cycle.
