GLYATL2 (Glycine-N-Acyltransferase Like 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Amino Acid conjugation and Metabolism. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include transferase activity, transferring acyl groups other than amino-acyl groups and glycine N-acyltransferase activity. An important paralog of this gene is GLYATL1B.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for GLYATL2 Gene
Mitochondrial acyltransferase which transfers the acyl group to the N-terminus of glycine. Conjugates numerous substrates, such as arachidonoyl-CoA and saturated medium and long-chain acyl-CoAs ranging from chain-length C8:0-CoA to C18:0-CoA, to form a variety of N-acylglycines. Shows a preference for monounsaturated fatty acid oleoyl-CoA (C18:1-CoA) as an acyl donor. Does not exhibit any activity toward C22:6-CoA and chenodeoxycholoyl-CoA, nor toward serine or alanine.
