UniProt Number: P07954
Alternate Names: FH, fumarate hydratase, L-malate hydrolyase, S-malate hydrolyase
Structure and Function: Fumarase catalyzes the reversible hydration/dehydration of fumarate to S-malate. Fumarase comes in two forms: mitochondrial and cytosolic. The mitochondrial form plays a role in the Citric Acid cycle and the cytosolic form is involved in the metabolism of amino acids and fumarate. Subcellular localization is established by the presence of a signal sequence on the amino terminus in the mitochondrial form.
Disease Associations: Defects in FH are the cause of fumarase deficiency (FD) [MIM:606812] (also known as fumaricaciduria), multiple cutaneous and uterine leiomyomata (MCUL1) [MIM:150800], and hereditary leiomyomatosis and renal cell cancer (HLRCC) [MIM:605839].
