This gene encodes one of several forms of glutamic aciddecarboxylase, identified as a major autoantigen ininsulin-dependent diabetes. The enzyme encoded is responsible forcatalyzing the production of gamma-aminobutyric acid fromL-glutamic acid. A pathogenic role for this enzyme has beenidentified in the human pancreas since it has been identified as anautoantigen and an autoreactive T cell target in insulin-dependentdiabetes. This gene may also play a role in the stiff man syndrome.Deficiency in this enzyme has been shown to lead to pyridoxinedependency with seizures. Alternative splicing of this gene resultsin two products, the predominant 67-kD form and a less-frequent25-kD form.
