GAD1 Human

Glutamate Decarboxylase 1 (GAD1) is one of several forms of glutamic acid decarboxylase, known as a key autoantigen in insulin-dependent diabetes. GAD1 is responsible for catalyzing the production of gamma-aminobutyric acid from L-glutamic acid. A pathogenic role for the GAD1 enzyme has been identified in the human pancreas since it has been detected as an autoantigen and an autoreactive T cell target in insulin-dependent diabetes. The GAD1 protein may also have a role in the stiff man syndrome. GAD1 enzyme deficiency leads to pyridoxine dependency with seizures. GAD1 also catalyzes the production of GABA.
