UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for ACOT4 Gene
Acyl-CoA thioesterases are a group of enzymes that catalyze the hydrolysis of acyl-CoAs to the free fatty acid and coenzyme A (CoASH), providing the potential to regulate intracellular levels of acyl-CoAs, free fatty acids and CoASH (PubMed:16940157). ACOT4 is a peroxisomal succinyl-coenzyme A thioesterase can also hydrolyze glutaryl-CoA and long chain saturated acyl-CoAs (PubMed:16940157).
