Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have guanidinoacetate N-methyltransferase activity and protein homodimerization activity. Involved in several processes, including creatine biosynthetic process; regulation of growth; and spermatogenesis. Predicted to localize to the cytoplasm and nucleus. Used to study guanidinoacetate methyltransferase deficiency. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in amino acid metabolic disorder and guanidinoacetate methyltransferase deficiency. Is expressed in pancreas. Orthologous to human GAMT (guanidinoacetate N-methyltransferase).
