Summaries for MCAT Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for MCAT Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is found exclusively in the mitochondrion, where it catalyzes the transfer of a malonyl group from malonyl-CoA to the mitochondrial acyl carrier protein. The encoded protein may be part of a fatty acid synthase complex that is more like the type II prokaryotic and plastid complexes rather than the type I human cytosolic complex. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2012]

GeneCards Summary for MCAT Gene

MCAT (Malonyl-CoA-Acyl Carrier Protein Transacylase) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MCAT include Middle Ear Disease. Among its related pathways are Mitochondrial Fatty Acid Beta-Oxidation and Metabolism. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include [acyl-carrier-protein] S-malonyltransferase activity.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MCAT Gene

  • Catalyzes the transfer of a malonyl moiety from malonyl-CoA to the free thiol group of the phosphopantetheine arm of the mitochondrial ACP protein (NDUFAB1). This suggests the existence of the biosynthesis of fatty acids in mitochondria.
