GeneCards Summary for ACSM1 Gene
ACSM1 (Acyl-CoA Synthetase Medium-Chain Family Member 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Amino Acid conjugation and Phase II conjugation. GO annotations related to this gene include GTP binding and fatty acid ligase activity. An important paralog of this gene is ACSM2B.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ACSM1 Gene
Has medium-chain fatty acid:CoA ligase activity with broad substrate specificity (in vitro). Acts on acids from C(4) to C(11) and on the corresponding 3-hydroxy- and 2,3- or 3,4-unsaturated acids (in vitro). Functions as GTP-dependent lipoate-activating enzyme that generates the substrate for lipoyltransferase (By similarity).
