AKGDH is an alias for the gene, Oxoglutarate (alpha-ketoglutarate) dehydrogenase (lipoamide), in humans. Other names include: 2-oxoglutarate dehydrogenase, mitochondrial; 2-oxoglutarate dehydrogenase complex component E1; OGDC-E1; Alpha-ketoglutarate dehydrogenase; 2-oxoglutarate dehydrogenase, mitochondrial ; E1k; OGDC. The encoded protein is an enzyme with an amino acid length of 1023 and a mass of 115.9 kDa. Other isoforms may exist. AKGDH is a member of the Alpha-ketoglutarate dehydrogenase family. This gene shares homology with other species, including: Frog.
