(Information is obtained from NCBI Gene database)
Entrez gene ID11019
Official gene symbolLIAS
Full namelipoic acid synthetase
Gene summaryThe protein encoded by this gene belongs to the biotin and lipoic acid synthetases family. It localizes in mitochondrion and plays an important role in alpha-(+)-lipoic acid synthesis. It may also function in the sulfur insertion chemistry in lipoate biosynthesis. Alternative splicing occurs at this locus and two transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been identified.
