Previous GeneCards Identifiers for SUCLG2 Gene
This gene encodes a GTP-specific beta subunit of succinyl-CoA synthetase. Succinyl-CoA synthetase catalyzes the reversible reaction involving the formation of succinyl-CoA and succinate. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants. Pseudogenes of this gene are found on chromosomes 5 and 12. [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2010]
GeneCards Summary for SUCLG2 Gene
SUCLG2 (Succinate-CoA Ligase GDP-Forming Beta Subunit) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Respiratory electron transport, ATP synthesis by chemiosmotic coupling, and heat production by uncoupling proteins. and Pyruvate metabolism and Citric Acid (TCA) cycle. GO annotations related to this gene include protein heterodimerization activity and GDP binding. An important paralog of this gene is SUCLA2.
