Gene: FAAH2 (fatty acid amide hydrolase 2) Homo sapiens
Analyze
Symbol: FAAH2
Name: fatty acid amide hydrolase 2
Description: This gene encodes a fatty acid amide hydrolase that shares a conserved protein motif with the amidase signature family of enzymes. The encoded enzyme is able to catalyze the hydrolysis of a broad range of bioactive lipids, including those from the three main classes of fatty acid amides; N-acylethanolamines, fatty acid primary amides and N-acyl amino acids. This enzyme has a preference for monounsaturated acyl chains as a substrate. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2017]
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
