This protein is involved in step 1 of the subpathway that synthesizes creatine from L-arginine and glycine.By similarity
Proteins known to be involved in the 2 steps of the subpathway in this organism are:
  1. Glycine amidinotransferase, mitochondrial (gatm)
  2. Guanidinoacetate N-methyltransferase (gamt)
This subpathway is part of the pathway creatine biosynthesis, which is itself part of Amine and polyamine biosynthesis.
View all proteins of this organism that are known to be involved in the subpathway that synthesizes creatine from L-arginine and glycine, the pathway creatine biosynthesis and in Amine and polyamine biosynthesis.
