GeneCards Summary for ACSM1 Gene
ACSM1 (Acyl-CoA Synthetase Medium Chain Family Member 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ACSM1 include Hypotrichosis 7. Among its related pathways are fatty acid beta-oxidation (peroxisome) and Metabolism. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include GTP binding and fatty acid ligase activity. An important paralog of this gene is ACSM2A.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ACSM1 Gene
Has medium-chain fatty acid:CoA ligase activity with broad substrate specificity (in vitro). Acts on acids from C(4) to C(11) and on the corresponding 3-hydroxy- and 2,3- or 3,4-unsaturated acids (in vitro). Functions as GTP-dependent lipoate-activating enzyme that generates the substrate for lipoyltransferase (By similarity).
