Summary
Enables cation binding activity; monosaccharide binding activity; and transketolase activity. Involved in pentose-phosphate shunt, non-oxidative branch and ribose phosphate biosynthetic process. Located in endoplasmic reticulum membrane and peroxisome. Orthologous to human TKT (transketolase). [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.
