Gene: Acot8 (acyl-CoA thioesterase 8) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Acot8
Name: acyl-CoA thioesterase 8
Description: Exhibits acyl-CoA hydrolase activity and choloyl-CoA hydrolase activity. Involved in acyl-CoA metabolic process. Localizes to the peroxisome. Orthologous to human ACOT8 (acyl-CoA thioesterase 8); INTERACTS WITH 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; ammonium chloride; bisphenol A.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: 4,8-dimethylnonanoyl-CoA thioesterase; 48-dimethylnonanoyl-CoA thioesterase; acyl-coenzyme A thioesterase 8; choloyl-coenzyme A thioesterase; peroxisomal acyl-CoA thioesterase 1; peroxisomal acyl-CoA thioesterase 2; peroxisomal acyl-coenzyme A thioester hydrolase 1; peroxisomal long-chain acyl-CoA thioesterase 1; peroxisomalacyl-CoAthioesterase1; PTE-1; PTE-2; Pte1
