Previous GeneCards Identifiers for CPT1C Gene
This gene encodes a member of the carnitine/choline acetyltransferase family. The encoded protein regulates the beta-oxidation and transport of long-chain fatty acids into mitochondria, and may play a role in the regulation of feeding behavior and whole-body energy homeostasis. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding multiple protein isoforms have been observed for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2010]
GeneCards Summary for CPT1C Gene
CPT1C (Carnitine Palmitoyltransferase 1C) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CPT1C include Spastic Paraplegia 73, Autosomal Dominant and Paraplegia. Among its related pathways are Respiratory electron transport, ATP synthesis by chemiosmotic coupling, and heat production by uncoupling proteins. and FOXA2 and FOXA3 transcription factor networks. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include transferase activity, transferring acyl groups and carnitine O-palmitoyltransferase activity. An important paralog of this gene is CPT1A.
