GeneCards Summary for RETSAT Gene
RETSAT (Retinol Saturase) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Vitamin A and Carotenoid Metabolism and Drug metabolism - cytochrome P450. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include oxidoreductase activity and all-trans-retinol 13,14-reductase activity.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for RETSAT Gene
Catalyzes the saturation of all-trans-retinol to all-trans-13,14-dihydroretinol. Does not exhibit any activity toward all-trans-retinoic acid, nor 9-cis, 11-cis or 13-cis-retinol isomers. May play a role in the metabolism of vitamin A. Independently of retinol conversion, may regulate liver metabolism upstream of MLXIPL/ChREBP. May play a role in adipocyte differentiation.
