Summary
The protein encoded by this gene is an enzyme that catalyzes the synthesis of leukotriene C4 by combining leukotriene A4 with reduced glutathione. The encoded protein is found in the outer nuclear membrane and in the peripheral endoplasmic reticulum. Leukotrienes have been implicated as mediators of anaphylaxis and inflammatory conditions such as bronchial asthma in humans. Several transcript variants encoding two different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2015]

RefSeqs maintained independently of Annotated Genomes

These reference sequences exist independently of genome builds. Explain

These reference sequences are curated independently of the genome annotation cycle, so their versions may not match the RefSeq versions in the current genome build. Identify version mismatches by comparing the version of the RefSeq in this section to the one reported in Genomic regions, transcripts, and products above.
