Gene : ACSS2 Homo sapiens

Name  ? acyl-CoA synthetase short chain family member 2 Cytological Location  20q11.22
Brief Description  acyl-CoA synthetase short chain family member 2
Description  This gene encodes a cytosolic enzyme that catalyzes the activation of acetate for use in lipid synthesis and energy generation. The protein acts as a monomer and produces acetyl-CoA from acetate in a reaction that requires ATP. Expression of this gene is regulated by sterol regulatory element-binding proteins, transcription factors that activate genes required for the synthesis of cholesterol and unsaturated fatty acids. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2009]
