Summaries for SUCLG2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary 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
