This gene encodes the cytosolic form of the enzymebranched-chain amino acid transaminase. This enzyme catalyzes thereversible transamination of branched-chain alpha-keto acids tobranched-chain L-amino acids essential for cell growth. Twodifferent clinical disorders have been attributed to a defect ofbranched-chain amino acid transamination: hypervalinemia andhyperleucine-isoleucinemia. As there is also a gene encoding amitochondrial form of this enzyme, mutations in either gene maycontribute to these disorders. Alternatively spliced transcriptvariants have been described.
