Summary
This gene encodes an enzyme that plays a major role in polyamine metabolism and is important for the salvage pathway of both adenine and methionine. The encoded enzyme is deficient in many cancers. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants have been described for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2021]

RefSeqs maintained independently of Annotated Genomes

These reference sequences exist independently of genome builds. Explain

These reference sequences are curated independently of the genome annotation cycle, so their versions may not match the RefSeq versions in the current genome build. Identify version mismatches by comparing the version of the RefSeq in this section to the one reported in Genomic regions, transcripts, and products above.
