Gene : AWAT1 Homo sapiens

Name  ? acyl-CoA wax alcohol acyltransferase 1 Cytological Location  Xq13.1
Brief Description  acyl-CoA wax alcohol acyltransferase 1
Description  The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the diacylglycerol acyltransferase family. It esterifies long chain (wax) alcohols with acyl-CoA-derived fatty acids to produce wax esters. Wax esters are enriched in sebum, suggesting that this enzyme plays a central role in lipid metabolism in skin. Consistent with this observation, this protein is predominantly expressed in the sebaceous gland of the skin. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2009]
