Gene: ACAA1 (acetyl-CoA acyltransferase 1) Homo sapiens
Symbol: ACAA1
Name: acetyl-CoA acyltransferase 1
Description: Exhibits acetate CoA-transferase activity and palmitoyl-CoA oxidase activity. Involved in bile acid metabolic process; fatty acid beta-oxidation; and very long-chain fatty acid metabolic process. Localizes to peroxisome.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: 3-ketoacyl-CoA thiolase, peroxisomal; ACAA; acetyl-Coenzyme A acyltransferase 1; beta-ketothiolase; peroxisomal 3-oxoacyl-CoA thiolase; peroxisomal 3-oxoacyl-Coenzyme A thiolase; PTHIO; testicular tissue protein Li 197; THIO
