Gene : BAAT Homo sapiens

Name  ? bile acid-CoA:amino acid N-acyltransferase Cytological Location  9q31.1
Brief Description  bile acid-CoA:amino acid N-acyltransferase
Description  The protein encoded by this gene is a liver enzyme that catalyzes the transfer of C24 bile acids from the acyl-CoA thioester to either glycine or taurine, the second step in the formation of bile acid-amino acid conjugates. The bile acid conjugates then act as a detergent in the gastrointestinal tract, which enhances lipid and fat-soluble vitamin absorption. Defects in this gene are a cause of familial hypercholanemia (FHCA). Two transcript variants encoding the same protein have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
