Official Full Name
GGT6 belongs to the gamma-glutamyltransferase (GGT; EC 188.8.131.52) gene family. GGT is a membrane-bound extracellular;enzyme that cleaves gamma-glutamyl peptide bonds in glutathione and other peptides and transfers the gamma-glutamyl;moiety to acceptors. GGT is also key to glutathione homeostasis because it provides substrates for glutathione;synthesis (Heisterkamp et al., 2008 (PubMed 18357469)).
