Gene: Cad (carbamoyl-phosphate synthetase 2, aspartate transcarbamylase, and dihydroorotase) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Cad
Name: carbamoyl-phosphate synthetase 2, aspartate transcarbamylase, and dihydroorotase
CRRD ID: 1588606
Description: Exhibits several functions, including aspartate carbamoyltransferase activity; carbamoyl-phosphate synthase (glutamine-hydrolyzing) activity; and dihydroorotase activity. Involved in several processes, including alpha-amino acid metabolic process; animal organ development; and pyrimidine-containing compound biosynthetic process. Localizes to several cellular components, including cytosol; neuronal cell body; and terminal bouton. Used to study hepatocellular carcinoma. Biomarker of hepatocellular carcinoma. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in early infantile epileptic encephalopathy 50. Orthologous to human CAD (carbamoyl-phosphate synthetase 2, aspartate transcarbamylase, and dihydroorotase); PARTICIPATES IN 2-hydroxyglutaric aciduria pathway; beta-ureidopropionase deficiency pathway; Canavan disease pathway; INTERACTS WITH 2,4-dinitrotoluene; 2,6-dinitrotoluene; 4-amino-2,6-dinitrotoluene.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: INFERRED
Also known as: Cad_mapped; Carbamyl phosphatate synthetase; carbamyl phosphatate synthetase 2; carbamyl phosphatate synthetase 2 (mapped)
