Gene: Gclm (glutamate cysteine ligase, modifier subunit) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Gclm
Name: glutamate cysteine ligase, modifier subunit
CRRD ID: 619871
Description: Exhibits glutamate-cysteine ligase activity and glutamate-cysteine ligase catalytic subunit binding activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to growth factor stimulus; cellular response to thyroxine stimulus; and response to gonadotropin. Localizes to glutamate-cysteine ligase complex. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in myocardial infarction and vascular dementia. Orthologous to human GCLM (glutamate-cysteine ligase modifier subunit); PARTICIPATES IN glutathione metabolic pathway; 2-hydroxyglutaric aciduria pathway; cysteine metabolic pathway; INTERACTS WITH (+)-alpha-tocopherol; (R)-lipoic acid; 1,1'-azobis(N,N-dimethylformamide).
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: gamma-ECS regulatory subunit; gamma-glutamylcysteine synthetase regulatory subunit; GCS light chain; Glclr; glutamate cysteine ligase (gamma-glutamylcysteine synthetase) regulatory; glutamate cysteine ligase (gamma-glutamylcysteine synthetase), regulatory; glutamate cysteine ligase modifier subunit; glutamate--cysteine ligase modifier subunit; glutamate--cysteine ligase regulatory subunit; glutamate-cysteine ligase modifier subunit
