Gene: Pklr (pyruvate kinase L/R) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Pklr
Name: pyruvate kinase L/R
CRRD ID: 3336
Description: Exhibits pyruvate kinase activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to organonitrogen compound; pyruvate metabolic process; and response to purine-containing compound. Localizes to cytosol. Biomarker of hyperglycemia. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Gaucher's disease; congenital nonspherocytic hemolytic anemia; malaria; pyruvate kinase deficiency of red cells; and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Orthologous to human PKLR (pyruvate kinase L/R); PARTICIPATES IN glycolysis pathway; pyruvate metabolic pathway; Fanconi syndrome pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1-naphthyl isothiocyanate; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 2,2',5,5'-tetrachlorobiphenyl.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: L-PK; PK1; PKL; Pklg; pyruvate kinase isozymes L/R; pyruvate kinase isozymes R/L; pyruvate kinase PKLR; pyruvate kinase, liver and RBC; pyruvate kinase, liver and red blood cell
