Summary
Enables 5-aminolevulinate synthase activity and coenzyme A binding activity. Involved in several processes, including gland development; response to benzene; and response to lead ion. Located in mitochondrion. Biomarker of anemia; bilirubin metabolic disorder; and hemolytic anemia. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in cutaneous porphyria; erythropoietic protoporphyria; hemochromatosis; sideroblastic anemia; and sideroblastic anemia 1. Orthologous to human ALAS2 (5'-aminolevulinate synthase 2). [provided by Alliance of Genome Resources, Apr 2022]

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.
