NCBI Summary for MTAP
This gene encodes an enzyme that plays a major role in polyamine metabolism and is important for the salvage of both adenine and methionine. The encoded enzyme is deficient in many cancers because this gene and the tumor suppressor p16 gene are co-deleted. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants have been described for this gene, but their full-length natures remain unknown. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
UniProt Comments for MTAP
MTAP: Catalyzes the reversible phosphorylation of S-methyl-5'- thioadenosine (MTA) to adenine and 5-methylthioribose-1-phosphate. Involved in the breakdown of MTA, a major by-product of polyamine biosynthesis. Responsible for the first step in the methionine salvage pathway after MTA has been generated from S- adenosylmethionine. Has broad substrate specificity with 6- aminopurine nucleosides as preferred substrates. Homotrimer. Ubiquitously expressed. Inhibited by 5'-methylthiotubercin and 5'- chloroformycin. Belongs to the PNP/MTAP phosphorylase family. MTAP subfamily.
