HAGH (Hydroxyacylglutathione Hydrolase) is a Protein Coding gene. 3 alternative splicing and alternative initiation of human isoforms have been reported. The enzyme encoded by this gene is classified as a thioesterase and is responsible for the hydrolysis of S-lactoyl-glutathione to reduced glutathione and D-lactate. HAGH belongs to the Metallo-beta-lactamase superfamily. HAGH is widely expressed in the kidney, liver, and other tissues. Diseases associated with HAGH include Hydroxyacyl Glutathione Hydrolase Deficiency. Among its related pathways are Pyruvate metabolism and Citric Acid (TCA) cycle and Metabolism. The human and rodent forms of glyoxalase II (HAGH) can readily be separated by starch gel electrophoretic procedures.
