  • FunctionCatalyzes the biosynthesis of guanidinoacetate, the immediate precursor of creatine. Creatine plays a vital role in energy metabolism in muscle tissues. May play a role in embryonic and central nervous system development. May be involved in the response to heart failure by elevating local creatine synthesis.
  • Tissue specificityExpressed in brain, heart, kidney, liver, lung, salivary gland and skeletal muscle tissue, with the highest expression in kidney. Biallelically expressed in placenta and fetal tissues.
  • PathwayAmine and polyamine biosynthesis; creatine biosynthesis; creatine from L-arginine and glycine: step 1/2.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in GATM are the cause of arginine:glycine amidinotransferase deficiency (AGAT deficiency) [MIM:612718]. AGAT deficiency is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by developmental delay/regression, mental retardation, severe disturbance of expressive and cognitive speech, and severe depletion of creatine/phosphocreatine in the brain.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the amidinotransferase family.
  • DomainOne chain folds into a compact single domain composed of repeating units, five beta-beta-alpha-beta modules, which surround the central active site.
  • Cellular localizationMitochondrion inner membrane. Cytoplasm. The mitochondrial form is found in the intermembrane space probably attached to the outer side of the inner membrane.
