Gene : LCAT Homo sapiens

Name  ? lecithin-cholesterol acyltransferase Cytological Location  16q22.1
Brief Description  lecithin-cholesterol acyltransferase
Description  This gene encodes the extracellular cholesterol esterifying enzyme, lecithin-cholesterol acyltransferase. The esterification of cholesterol is required for cholesterol transport. Mutations in this gene have been found to cause fish-eye disease as well as LCAT deficiency. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
