Gene: GAD1 (glutamate decarboxylase 1) Homo sapiens
Symbol: GAD1
Name: glutamate decarboxylase 1
Description: Exhibits glutamate decarboxylase activity. Predicted to be involved in glutamate decarboxylation to succinate; neurotransmitter secretion; and protein-pyridoxal-5-phosphate linkage. Predicted to localize to clathrin-sculpted gamma-aminobutyric acid transport vesicle membrane and plasma membrane. Implicated in anxiety disorder; bipolar disorder; schizophrenia; and spastic quadriplegia.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
