GeneCards Summary for ACOT6 Gene
ACOT6 (Acyl-CoA Thioesterase 6) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Metabolism and Fatty Acyl-CoA Biosynthesis. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include carboxylic ester hydrolase activity. An important paralog of this gene is ACOT1.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for ACOT6 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). It is unclear if human acyl-coenzyme A thioesterase 6/ACOT6 has an acyl-CoA thioesterase (Probable).
