GeneCards Summary for RETSAT Gene
RETSAT (Retinol Saturase) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Vitamin A and carotenoid metabolism and Metabolism of xenobiotics by cytochrome P450. GO annotations related to this gene include oxidoreductase activity and all-trans-retinol 13,14-reductase activity.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for RETSAT Gene
Retinol saturase carrying out the saturation of the 13-14 double bond of all-trans-retinol to produce all-trans-13,14-dihydroretinol. Has activity toward all-trans-retinol as substrate. Does not use all-trans-retinoic acid nor 9-cis, 11-cis or 13-cis-retinol isomers as substrates. May play a role in the metabolism of vitamin A (By similarity).
