Gene: AWAT1 (acyl-CoA wax alcohol acyltransferase 1) Homo sapiens
Symbol: AWAT1
Name: acyl-CoA wax alcohol acyltransferase 1
Description: Exhibits long-chain-alcohol O-fatty-acyltransferase activity. Predicted to be involved in arachidonic acid metabolic process and wax biosynthetic process. Predicted to localize to the endoplasmic reticulum membrane.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: DGA2; DGAT2L3; diacyl-glycerol acyltransferase 2; diacylglycerol acyltransferase 2; diacylglycerol O-acyltransferase 2-like 3; diacylglycerol O-acyltransferase 2-like protein 3; long-chain-alcohol O-fatty-acyltransferase 1
