GeneCards Summary for ACSM3 Gene
ACSM3 (Acyl-CoA Synthetase Medium Chain Family Member 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Mitochondrial Fatty Acid Beta-Oxidation and Regulation of lipid metabolism by Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor alpha (PPARalpha). Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include butyrate-CoA ligase activity and fatty acid ligase activity. An important paralog of this gene is ACSM4.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ACSM3 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) (By similarity).
