Previous Symbols for EHHADH Gene
The protein encoded by this gene is a bifunctional enzyme and is one of the four enzymes of the peroxisomal beta-oxidation pathway. The N-terminal region of the encoded protein contains enoyl-CoA hydratase activity while the C-terminal region contains 3-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase activity. Defects in this gene are a cause of peroxisomal disorders such as Zellweger syndrome. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2009]
GeneCards Summary for EHHADH Gene
EHHADH (Enoyl-CoA, Hydratase/3-Hydroxyacyl CoA Dehydrogenase) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with EHHADH include fanconi renotubular syndrome 3 and trifunctional protein deficiency. Among its related pathways are IL6-mediated signaling events and Metabolism. GO annotations related to this gene include receptor binding and coenzyme binding. An important paralog of this gene is HADHA.
