AGXT2 [ENSP00000231420]

(R)-3-amino-2-methylpropionate--pyruvate transaminase; Can metabolize asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA) via transamination to alpha-keto-delta-(NN-dimethylguanidino) valeric acid (DMGV). ADMA is a potent inhibitor of nitric-oxide (NO) synthase, and this activity provides mechanism through which the kidney regulates blood pressure; Belongs to the class-III pyridoxal-phosphate-dependent aminotransferase family.
