Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to have O-phospho-L-serine:2-oxoglutarate aminotransferase activity; identical protein binding activity; and pyridoxal phosphate binding activity. Predicted to be involved in L-serine biosynthetic process. Predicted to localize to cytosol. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; genitourinary system; integumental system; nervous system; and sensory organ. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Neu-Laxova syndrome 2 and PSAT deficiency. Orthologous to human PSAT1 (phosphoserine aminotransferase 1).
