24140252 Participants with major depression had lower levels of kynurenine compared to controls, with intermediate concentrations in somatoform patients.
21712776 Somatization is characterized by disorders in kynurenine aminotransferase activity and an increased neurotoxic potential
21473761 association of SNP AADAT+401C/T with the host immune response to bacterial meningitis, suggesting that this SNP may affect the host ability in recruitment of leukocytes to the infection site

18056996 analysis of the crystal structure of human kynurenine aminotransferase II
18056995 analysis of the crystal structure of kynurenine aminotransferase II
12126930 A human cDNA encodes a 425-residue protein with a mitochondrial cleavage signal and a pyridoxal-phosphate binding site, ~70% identical to the mouse and rat AADAT orthologs. Bacterial expression studies confirm that the gene encodes AADAT activity.
