GeneCards Summary for MBOAT4 Gene

MBOAT4 (Membrane Bound O-Acyltransferase Domain Containing 4) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Biosynthesis of the N-glycan precursor (dolichol lipid-linked oligosaccharide, LLO) and transfer to a nascent protein and Peptide hormone metabolism. GO annotations related to this gene include serine O-acyltransferase activity. An important paralog of this gene is MBOAT7.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MBOAT4 Gene

  • Mediates the octanoylation of ghrelin at Ser-3. Can use a variety of fatty acids as substrates including octanoic acid, decanoic acid and tetradecanoic acid.
