O-6-methylguanine-DNA methyltransferase

Methylguanine-DNA Methyltransferase, MGMT, O6-methylguanine-DNA methyltransferase
This gene is expressed only in the liver and the encoded protein is localized mostly in the peroxisomes, where it is involved in glyoxylate detoxification. Mutations in this gene, some of which alter subcellular targetting, have been associated with type I primary hyperoxaluria. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Review
New
Marignol et al., Dublin, Ireland. In Tumour Biol, Nov 2015
Silencing of the O(6)-methylguanine-DNA methyltransferase (MGMT) promoter is thought to induce chemosensitivity, and testing for methylation may allow for patient stratification; however, this has yet to become routine clinical practice despite an abundance of literature on the subject.
