Defects in AGXT are the cause of hyperoxaluria primary type 1 (HP1); also known as primary hyperoxaluria type I (PH1) and oxalosis I. HP1 is a rare autosomal recessive inborn error of glyoxylate metabolism characterized by increased excretion of oxalate and glycolate, and the progressive accumulation of insoluble calcium oxalate in the kidney and urinary tract. Belongs to the class-V pyridoxal-phosphate-dependent aminotransferase family. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
