The encoded protein catalyzes the last step of the mitochondrial fatty acid beta-oxidation spiral. Unlike most mitochondrial matrix proteins, it contains a non-cleavable amino-terminal targeting signal. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for ACAA2 Gene
ACAA2 (Acetyl-CoA Acyltransferase 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ACAA2 include Progressive External Ophthalmoplegia With Mitochondrial Dna Deletions, Autosomal Dominant 2 and Mitochondrial Dna Depletion Syndrome 12. Among its related pathways are gamma-linolenate biosynthesis and Fatty Acid Biosynthesis (WikiPathways). GO annotations related to this gene include poly(A) RNA binding and acetyl-CoA C-acyltransferase activity. An important paralog of this gene is ACAT2.
