The protein encoded by this gene is a nuclear protein which is transported to the mitochondrial inner membrane. Together with carnitine palmitoyltransferase I, the encoded protein oxidizes long-chain fatty acids in the mitochondria. Defects in this gene are associated with mitochondrial long-chain fatty-acid (LCFA) oxidation disorders. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for CPT2 Gene
CPT2 (Carnitine Palmitoyltransferase 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CPT2 include Carnitine Palmitoyltransferase Ii Deficiency, Infantile and Carnitine Palmitoyltransferase Ii Deficiency, Myopathic, Stress-Induced. Among its related pathways are Respiratory electron transport, ATP synthesis by chemiosmotic coupling, and heat production by uncoupling proteins. and Import of palmitoyl-CoA into the mitochondrial matrix. 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 CRAT.
