Gene: BCAT2 (branched chain amino acid transaminase 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: BCAT2
Name: branched chain amino acid transaminase 2
Description: Predicted to have branched-chain-amino-acid transaminase activity. Predicted to be involved in leucine biosynthetic process and valine biosynthetic process. Localizes to the mitochondrion.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: BCAM; BCATM; BCT2; branched chain amino-acid transaminase 2, mitochondrial; branched chain aminotransferase 2, mitochondrial; branched-chain-amino-acid aminotransferase, mitochondrial; placental protein 18; PP18
