Gene: Faah (fatty acid amide hydrolase) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Faah
Name: fatty acid amide hydrolase
CRRD ID: 61808
Description: Exhibits several functions, including acylglycerol lipase activity; hydrolase activity, acting on carbon-nitrogen (but not peptide) bonds, in linear amides; and identical protein binding activity. Involved in fatty acid catabolic process; monoacylglycerol catabolic process; and negative regulation of blood vessel diameter. Localizes to organelle membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in obesity and substance-related disorder. Orthologous to human FAAH (fatty acid amide hydrolase); INTERACTS WITH (+)-schisandrin B; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: anandamide amidase; anandamide amidohydrolase 1; fatty acid ester hydrolase; fatty-acid amide hydrolase 1; oleamide hydrolase 1

Latest Assembly: Rnor_6.0 - RGSC Genome Assembly v6.0
NCBI Annotation Information: Note: This locus corresponds to the rat Faah gene and shares synteny with Faah in mouse and human. Rat Faah was previously associated with GeneID: 29347, which may correspond to a duplication of this locus in the rat assembly. [19 Mar 2019]
