Go Annotations as Summary Text (Tabular View) (GO Graph)

GO curators for mouse genes have assigned the following annotations to the gene product of Aspa. (This text reflects annotations as of Thursday, July 24, 2014.)
Summary from NCBI RefSeq


This gene encodes an enzyme that deacteylates N-acetyl-L-aspartic acid (NAA) in the brain to yield acetate and L-aspartate. In humans, alterations in neuronal NAA concentration are associated with many neurodegenerative diseases (decrease associated with epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, myotrophic lateral sclerosis, and Alzheimer's disease; increase associated with Canavan disease). In mouse, mutations in this gene, which cause accumulation of NAA, result in demyelination and spongy degeneration in the CNS and serve as a pathophysiological model for Canavan disease.
