CDO1 Initiates several important metabolic pathways related to pyruvate and several sulfurate compounds including sulfate, hypotaurine and taurine. Critical regulator of cellular cysteine concentrations. Has an important role in maintaining the hepatic concentation of intracellular free cysteine within a proper narrow range. Belongs to the cysteine dioxygenase family. Highly expressed in liver and placenta. Low expression in heart, brain and pancreas. Also detected in hepatoblastoma Hep-G2 cells. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
