Gene Information

human ... GATM(2628)

General description

This gene encodes a mitochondrial enzyme that belongs to the amidinotransferase family. This enzyme is involved in creatine biosynthesis, whereby it catalyzes the transfer of a guanido group from L-arginine to glycine, resulting in guanidinoacetic acid, the immediate precursor of creatine. Mutations in this gene cause arginine:glycine amidinotransferase deficiency, an inborn error of creatine synthesis characterized by mental retardation, language impairment, and behavioral disorders.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Glycine amidinotransferase (GATM) is involved in the formation of ornithine and guanidinoacetate from arginine and glycine. This is an important step in creatine synthesis. Mutations in the gene encoding GATM have been shown to lead to arginine-glycine amidinotransferase deficiency.
