Gene: Cpt1a (carnitine palmitoyltransferase 1A) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Cpt1a
Name: carnitine palmitoyltransferase 1A
CRRD ID: 2396
Description: Exhibits carnitine O-palmitoyltransferase activity and identical protein binding activity. Involved in several processes, including fatty acid metabolic process; liver regeneration; and response to tetrachloromethane. Localizes to integral component of mitochondrial outer membrane. Biomarker of alcoholic hepatitis; obesity; and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in carnitine palmitoyltransferase I deficiency and lipid metabolism disorder. Orthologous to human CPT1A (carnitine palmitoyltransferase 1A); PARTICIPATES IN adenosine monophosphate-activated protein kinase (AMPK) signaling pathway; carnitine palmitoyltransferase I deficiency pathway; ethylmalonic encephalopathy pathway; INTERACTS WITH (+)-schisandrin B; (+)-taxifolin; (R)-carnitine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: carnitine O-palmitoyltransferase 1, liver isoform; carnitine O-palmitoyltransferase I, liver isoform; Carnitine palmitoyltransferase 1 alpha liver isoform; Carnitine palmitoyltransferase 1 alpha, liver isoform; Carnitine palmitoyltransferase 1, liver; carnitine palmitoyltransferase 1A liver; carnitine palmitoyltransferase 1a, liver; CPT I; CPT-Ia; CPT1-L; CPTI-L
