Gene: FAAH (fatty acid amide hydrolase) Homo sapiens
Symbol: FAAH
Name: fatty acid amide hydrolase
Description: Exhibits fatty acid amide hydrolase activity. Involved in fatty acid catabolic process. Predicted to localize to the organelle membrane. Implicated in obesity and substance-related disorder.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: anandamide amidohydrolase 1; FAAH-1; fatty-acid amide hydrolase 1; MGC102823; MGC138146; oleamide hydrolase 1; PSAB
