Summaries for ACOT9 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ACOT9 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a mitochondrial acyl-CoA thioesterase of unknown function. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2010]

GeneCards Summary for ACOT9 Gene

ACOT9 (Acyl-CoA Thioesterase 9) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ACOT9 include Kabuki Syndrome 1. Among its related pathways are Metabolism and Regulation of lipid metabolism by Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor alpha (PPARalpha). GO annotations related to this gene include carboxylic ester hydrolase activity and acetyl-CoA hydrolase activity.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ACOT9 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 on long chain acyl-CoAs.
