BCAT2 encodes a branched chain aminotransferase found in mitochondria. Additionally we are shipping Branched Chain Amino-Acid Transaminase 2, Mitochondrial Antibodies (55) and Branched Chain Amino-Acid Transaminase 2, Mitochondrial Proteins (12) and many more products for this protein.

The mitochondrial isoform human brain BCAT 2 is largely confined to vascular endothelial cells, whereas the cytosolic human brain BCAT 1 (show BCAT1 ELISA Kits) is restricted to neurons.
BCATc (show BCAT1 ELISA Kits) (cytosolic) has an overall redox potential that is 30 mV lower than BCATm (mitochondrial). Furthermore, the CXXC motif of BCATc (show BCAT1 ELISA Kits) was estimated to be 80 mV lower, suggesting that BCATm is more oxidizing in nature.
leucine supplementation increased the expression of enzymes (BCAT1 (show BCAT1 ELISA Kits), BCAT2 and BCKDK (show BCKDK ELISA Kits)) that metabolize branched-chain amino acids.
Increased blood branched-chain amino acids is sufficient to ameliorate the catabolic effect of LPS (show TLR4 ELISA Kits) on skeletal muscle protein synthesis; this may provide a survival advantage in response to bacterial infection.
BCAT2 has a role in branched chain amino acid (BCAA) metabolism modified by GLUT4 glucose-transporter
This gene encodes a branched chain aminotransferase found in mitochondria. The encoded protein forms a dimer that catalyzes the first step in the production of the branched chain amino acids leucine, isoleucine, and valine. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.
