Gene : ACAT2 Homo sapiens

Name  ? acetyl-CoA acetyltransferase 2 Cytological Location  6q25.3
Brief Description  acetyl-CoA acetyltransferase 2
Description  The product of this gene is an enzyme involved in lipid metabolism, and it encodes cytosolic acetoacetyl-CoA thiolase. This gene shows complementary overlapping with the 3-prime region of the TCP1 gene in both mouse and human. These genes are encoded on opposite strands of DNA, as well as in opposite transcriptional orientation. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2014]
