Protein Product
dioxygenase BNA2
Feature Type
ORF , Verified
Tryptophan 2,3-dioxygenase or indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase; required for de novo biosynthesis of NAD+ from tryptophan via kynurenine; up-regulated by telomere uncapping, and interacts genetically with capping gene CDC13; overexpression reduces lipid droplet accumulation by skewing glycolytic flux towards biosynthesis of shikimate, aromatic amino acids, and NAD+ during aging and extends lifespan; regulated by Hst1p and Aftp 1 2 3 4 5 6
