About This Section

Entrez Gene summary for AMACR Gene:
This gene encodes a racemase. The encoded enzyme interconverts pristanoyl-CoA and C27-bile acylCoAs between their
(R)- and (S)-stereoisomers. The conversion to the (S)-stereoisomers is necessary for degradation of these
substrates by peroxisomal beta-oxidation. Encoded proteins from this locus localize to both mitochondria and
peroxisomes. Mutations in this gene may be associated with adult-onset sensorimotor neuropathy, pigmentary
retinopathy, and adrenomyeloneuropathy due to defects in bile acid synthesis. Alternatively spliced transcript
variants have been described. Read-through transcription also exists between this gene and the upstream
neighboring C1QTNF3 (C1q and tumor necrosis factor related protein 3) gene. (provided by RefSeq, Mar 2011)

GeneCards Summary for AMACR Gene: 
AMACR (alpha-methylacyl-CoA racemase) is a protein-coding gene. Diseases associated with AMACR include mucinous tubular and spindle cell carcinoma, and spindle cell carcinoma, and among its related super-pathways are Synthesis of bile acids and bile salts and Metabolic pathways. GO annotations related to this gene include alpha-methylacyl-CoA racemase activity and receptor binding. An important paralog of this gene is C7orf10.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot: AMACR_HUMAN, Q9UHK6
Function: Racemization of 2-methyl-branched fatty acid CoA esters. Responsible for the conversion of
pristanoyl-CoA and C27-bile acyl-CoAs to their (S)-stereoisomers

  • Alpha-methylacyl-CoA racemase deficiency (AMACRD) [MIM:614307]: A rare autosomal recessive peroxisomal
    disorder characterized by elevated plasma concentrations of pristanic acid C27-bile-acid intermediates, and adult
    onset of variable neurodegenerative symptoms affecting the central and peripheral nervous systems. Features may
    include seizures, visual failure, sensorimotor neuropathy, spasticity, migraine, and white matter
    hyperintensities on brain imaging. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this
    entry
  • Congenital bile acid synthesis defect 4 (CBAS4) [MIM:214950]: A disorder characterized by the presence of
    trihydroxycoprostanic acid in the bile and absence of cholic acid. Patients manifest neonatal jaundice,
    intrahepatic cholestasis and bile duct deficiency. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene
