GeneCards Summary for PM20D1 Gene
PM20D1 (Peptidase M20 Domain Containing 1) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include hydrolase activity and peptidase activity. An important paralog of this gene is ABHD14A-ACY1.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for PM20D1 Gene
Bidirectional N-fatty-acyl amino acid synthase/hydrolase that regulates the production of N-fatty-acyl amino acids. These metabolites are endogenous chemical uncouplers of mitochondrial respiration. In an UCP1-independent manner, maybe through interaction with mitochondrial transporters, they promote proton leakage into the mitochondrial matrix. Thereby, this secreted protein may indirectly regulate the bodily dissipation of chemical energy as heat through thermogenic respiration.
