Gene: Crat (carnitine acetyltransferase) Mus musculus
Symbol: Crat
Name: carnitine acetyltransferase
Description: Predicted to have carnitine O-acetyltransferase activity. Predicted to be involved in carnitine metabolic process, CoA-linked and fatty acid metabolic process. Localizes to the mitochondrion. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in neurodegeneration with brain iron accumulation. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; genitourinary system; respiratory system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human CRAT (carnitine O-acetyltransferase); PARTICIPATES IN adrenoleukodystrophy pathway; carnitine-acylcarnitine translocase deficiency; fatty acid beta degradation pathway; INTERACTS WITH (+)-dexrazoxane; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
