FAAH2

Official Full Name
fatty acid amide hydrolase 2
Background
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.
Synonyms
FAAH2; fatty acid amide hydrolase 2; AMDD, amidase domain containing; fatty-acid amide hydrolase 2; FAAH 2; FLJ31204; RP11 479E16.1; oleamide hydrolase 2; amidase domain containing; anandamide amidohydrolase 2; amidase domain-containing protein; AMDD
