Gene: ALKBH8 (alkB homolog 8, tRNA methyltransferase) Homo sapiens
Symbol: ALKBH8
Name: alkB homolog 8, tRNA methyltransferase
CRRD ID: 1602194
Description: Exhibits several functions, including tRNA (uracil) methyltransferase activity; tRNA binding activity; and zinc ion binding activity. Involved in cellular response to DNA damage stimulus; oxidation-reduction process; and tRNA modification. Localizes to cytosol and nuclear body. Implicated in autosomal recessive non-syndromic intellectual disability; INTERACTS WITH 4,4'-sulfonyldiphenol; 5-fluorouracil; aflatoxin B1.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
