Analyze
Symbol: Faah
Name: fatty acid amide hydrolase
Description: ENCODES a protein that exhibits acylglycerol lipase activity; amidase activity; anandamide amidohydrolase activity; INVOLVED IN fatty acid catabolic process; fatty acid metabolic process; monoacylglycerol catabolic process; ASSOCIATED WITH drug dependence (ortholog); Huntington's disease (ortholog); obesity (ortholog); FOUND IN organelle membrane; INTERACTS WITH 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 2,4-dinitrotoluene
AGR Description: Exhibits several functions, including hydrolase activity, acting on carbon-nitrogen (but not peptide) bonds, in linear amides, hydrolase activity, acting on ester bonds, and phospholipid binding activity; involved in fatty acid catabolic process and negative regulation of blood vessel diameter; localizes to the organelle membrane; orthologous to human FAAH (fatty acid amide hydrolase).

Latest Assembly: Rnor_6.0 - RGSC Genome Assembly v6.0
NCBI Annotation Information: Note: This locus corresponds to the rat Faah gene and shares synteny with Faah in mouse and human. Rat Faah was previously associated with GeneID: 29347, which may correspond to a duplication of this locus in the rat assembly. [19 Mar 2019]
