Gene: Faah (fatty acid amide hydrolase) Mus musculus
Symbol: Faah
Name: fatty acid amide hydrolase
Description: Exhibits acylglycerol lipase activity. Predicted to be involved in fatty acid catabolic process. Predicted to localize to organelle membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; ganglia; olfactory epithelium; and renal calyx. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in obesity and substance-related disorder. Orthologous to human FAAH (fatty acid amide hydrolase); INTERACTS WITH 1,2-dimethylhydrazine; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: amide hydrolase; anandamide amidohydrolase 1; AW412498; fatty acid amide hydrolase protein; fatty acid ester hydrolase; fatty-acid amide hydrolase 1; oleamide hydrolase 1
