Summaries for MECR Gene

GeneCards Summary for MECR Gene

MECR (Mitochondrial Trans-2-Enoyl-CoA Reductase) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MECR include blepharospasm. Among its related pathways are Metabolism and Fatty acid metabolism. GO annotations related to this gene include trans-2-enoyl-CoA reductase (NADPH) activity.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MECR Gene

  • Oxidoreductase with a preference for short and medium chain substrates, including trans-2-hexenoyl-CoA (C6), trans-2-decenoyl-CoA (C10), and trans-2-hexadecenoyl-CoA (C16). May play a role in mitochondrial fatty acid synthesis.
