This gene encodes a branched chain aminotransferase foundin mitochondria. The encoded protein forms a dimer that catalyzesthe first step in the production of the branched chain amino acidsleucine, isoleucine, and valine. Multiple transcript variantsencoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.
