gamma-Glutamyltransferase (gamma-Glutamyl Transpeptidase) Summary

Description: An enzyme, sometimes called GGT, with a key role in the synthesis and degradation of GLUTATHIONE; (GSH, a tripeptide that protects cells from many toxins). It catalyzes the transfer of the gamma-glutamyl moiety to an acceptor amino acid.

Also Known As: gamma-Glutamyl Transpeptidase; Transpeptidase, Glutamyl; Transpeptidase, gamma-Glutamyl; gamma Glutamyl Transpeptidase; gamma Glutamyltransferase Show All >>
