GeneCards Summary for ACOT9 Gene
ACOT9 (Acyl-CoA Thioesterase 9) is a Protein Coding gene. 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
