Gene : AWAT2 Homo sapiens

Name  ? acyl-CoA wax alcohol acyltransferase 2 Cytological Location  Xq13.1
Brief Description  acyl-CoA wax alcohol acyltransferase 2
Description  This gene encodes an enzyme belonging to the diacylglycerol acyltransferase family. This enzyme produces wax esters by the esterification of long chain (or wax) alcohols with acyl-CoA-derived fatty acids. It functions in lipid metabolism in the skin, mostly in undifferentiated peripheral sebocytes. This enzyme may also have acyl-CoA:retinol acyltransferase activities, where it catalyzes the synthesis of diacylglycerols and retinyl esters. [provided by RefSeq, May 2010]
