Gene: CPT1A (carnitine palmitoyltransferase 1A) Homo sapiens
Symbol: CPT1A
Name: carnitine palmitoyltransferase 1A
RGD ID: 735945
Description: Exhibits carnitine O-palmitoyltransferase activity. Involved in carnitine metabolic process; epithelial cell differentiation; and long-chain fatty acid metabolic process. Localizes to mitochondrion. Implicated in carnitine palmitoyltransferase I deficiency and lipid metabolism disorder.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: carnitine O-palmitoyltransferase 1, liver isoform; carnitine O-palmitoyltransferase I, liver isoform; carnitine palmitoyltransferase 1, liver; carnitine palmitoyltransferase 1A (liver); carnitine palmitoyltransferase I, liver; CPT I; CPT1; CPT1-L; CPTI-L; L-CPT1
