Gene Information

This gene encodes a key enzyme in catabolism of quinolinate an intermediate in the tryptophan-nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide pathway. Quinolinate acts as a most potent endogenous exitotoxin to neurons. Elevation of quinolinate levels in the brain has been linked to the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative disorders such as epilepsy Alzheimer's disease and Huntington's disease.
