glutamate-ammonia ligase

Gene Summary

Enables several functions, including anion binding activity; dynein light chain binding activity; and metal ion binding activity. Involved in glutamine metabolic process; positive regulation of cell communication; and positive regulation of epithelial cell proliferation. Located in several cellular components, including myelin sheath; perikaryon; and rough endoplasmic reticulum. Part of protein-containing complex. Used to study obesity; temporal lobe epilepsy; and visual epilepsy. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Alzheimer's disease; Huntington's disease; and temporal lobe epilepsy. Orthologous to human GLUL (glutamate-ammonia ligase). [provided by Alliance of Genome Resources, Apr 2022]
