ACOT1 (Acyl-CoA Thioesterase 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ACOT1 include Human Immunodeficiency Virus Infectious Disease. Among its related pathways are Regulation of lipid metabolism by Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor alpha (PPARalpha) and Metabolism. GO annotations related to this gene include hydrolase activity and palmitoyl-CoA hydrolase activity. An important paralog of this gene is ACOT2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ACOT1 Gene
Acyl-CoA thioesterases are a group of enzymes that catalyze the hydrolysis of acyl-CoAs to the free fatty acid and coenzyme A (CoASH), providing the potential to regulate intracellular levels of acyl-CoAs, free fatty acids and CoASH. Active towards fatty acyl-CoA with chain-lengths of C12-C16 (By similarity).
