Gene: AWAT2 (acyl-CoA wax alcohol acyltransferase 2) Homo sapiens
Analyze
Symbol: AWAT2
Name: acyl-CoA wax alcohol acyltransferase 2
Description: This gene encodes an enzyme belonging to the diacylglycerol acyltransferase family. This enzyme produces wax esters by the esterification of long chain (or wax) alcohols with acyl-CoA-derived fatty acids. It functions in lipid metabolism in the skin, mostly in undifferentiated peripheral sebocytes. This enzyme may also have acyl-CoA:retinol acyltransferase activities, where it catalyzes the synthesis of diacylglycerols and retinyl esters. [provided by RefSeq, May 2010]
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: acyl-CoA retinol O-fatty-acyltransferase; ARAT; DC4; DGAT2L4; diacylglycerol O-acyltransferase 2-like protein 4; diacylglycerol O-acyltransferase candidate 4; long-chain-alcohol O-fatty-acyltransferase 2; MFAT; multifunctional O-acyltransferase; retinol O-fatty-acyltransferase; WS
