Summaries for NAAA Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for NAAA Gene

  • This gene encodes an N-acylethanolamine-hydrolyzing enzyme which is highly similar to acid ceramidase. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for NAAA Gene

NAAA (N-Acylethanolamine Acid Amidase) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with NAAA include acquired thrombocytopenia and marantic endocarditis. Among its related pathways are Transmission across Chemical Synapses and Neurotransmitter Release Cycle. GO annotations related to this gene include transcription factor binding and hydrolase activity, acting on carbon-nitrogen (but not peptide) bonds. An important paralog of this gene is ASAH1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NAAA Gene

  • Degrades bioactive fatty acid amides to their corresponding acids, with the following preference: N-palmitoylethanolamine > N-myristoylethanolamine > N-lauroylethanolamine = N-stearoylethanolamine > N-arachidonoylethanolamine > N-oleoylethanolamine. Also exhibits weak hydrolytic activity against the ceramides N-lauroylsphingosine and N-palmitoylsphingosine.
