Gene: AMACR (alpha-methylacyl-CoA racemase) Homo sapiens
Symbol: AMACR
Name: alpha-methylacyl-CoA racemase
Description: Exhibits alpha-methylacyl-CoA racemase activity and signaling receptor binding activity. Involved in bile acid metabolic process. Localizes to mitochondrion; peroxisome; and plasma membrane. Implicated in alpha-methylacyl-CoA racemase deficiency; congenital bile acid synthesis defect 4; and urinary bladder cancer. Biomarker of breast carcinoma; prostate carcinoma in situ; and renal cell carcinoma.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: 2-methylacyl-CoA racemase; AMACRD; CBAS4; P504S; RACE; RM
