citrate synthase

ENTREZID: 1431 | Type: Protein Coding | Map: 12q13.3

OMIM: 118950

Summary Entrez
The protein encoded by this gene is a Krebs tricarboxylic acid cycle enzyme that catalyzes the synthesis of citrate from oxaloacetate and acetyl coenzyme A. The enzyme is found in nearly all cells capable of oxidative metablism. This protein is nuclear encoded and transported into the mitochondrial matrix, where the mature form is found.
