Gene: PORCN (porcupine O-acyltransferase) Homo sapiens
Symbol: PORCN
Name: porcupine O-acyltransferase
Description: Predicted to have palmitoleoyltransferase activity. Predicted to be involved in Wnt signaling pathway and protein palmitoleylation. Predicted to localize to the endoplasmic reticulum. Implicated in focal dermal hypoplasia.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
