KYNU, also known as Kynureninase, has a 465 amino acid long isoform that is 52 kDa and a short 307 amino acid that is 35 kDa; its highest expressed levels are found in placenta, liver and lung; is a PLP dependent enzyme that catalyses the cleavage of kynurenine (Kyn) into anthranilic acid (Ant), and It can also act on 3hKyn (to produce 3hAnt) and some other (3-arylcarbonyl)-alanines, and has cysteine-conjugate-beta-lyase activity. This protein is currently being studied for research on the following diseases and disorders: transient cerebral ischemia, vitamin b deficiency, hydroxykynureninuria, pellagra, cerebritis, ischemia, atopic dermatitis, intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma, essential hypertension, noma, brain injury, dermatitis, psoriasis cholangiocarcinoma, neurologic diseases, interferon, and neuronitis. Interactions with KYNU protein have been shown to involve 40 proteins including GCK, PIN1, NEDD4L, HSPA9, and ETFA in tryptophan catabolism, metabolism, metabolism of amino acids and derivatives, and NAD metabolism pathways.
