Summaries for ADSSL1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ADSSL1 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the adenylosuccinate synthase family of proteins. The encoded muscle-specific enzyme plays a role in the purine nucleotide cycle by catalyzing the first step in the conversion of inosine monophosphate (IMP) to adenosine monophosphate (AMP). Mutations in this gene may cause adolescent onset distal myopathy. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2016]

GeneCards Summary for ADSSL1 Gene

ADSSL1 (Adenylosuccinate Synthase Like 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ADSSL1 include Myopathy, Distal, 5 and Myopathy. Among its related pathways are Pyrimidine metabolism (KEGG) and Metabolism. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include protein homodimerization activity and GTPase activity. An important paralog of this gene is ADSS.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ADSSL1 Gene

  • Component of the purine nucleotide cycle (PNC), which interconverts IMP and AMP to regulate the nucleotide levels in various tissues, and which contributes to glycolysis and ammoniagenesis. Catalyzes the first committed step in the biosynthesis of AMP from IMP.
