Official Full Name
carnitine O-acetyltransferase
Background
This gene encodes carnitine acetyltransferase (CRAT), which is a key enzyme in the metabolic pathway in mitochondria, peroxisomes and endoplasmic reticulum. CRAT catalyzes the reversible transfer of acyl groups from an acyl-CoA thioester to carnitine and regulates the ratio of acylCoA/CoA in the subcellular compartments. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants; additional transcript variants have been described, but their biological validity has not been determined.
Synonyms
CRAT; carnitine O-acetyltransferase; carnitine acetyltransferase; CAT1; Carnitine acetylase; Carnitine O acetyltransferase; CAT; RP11-247A12.5, CAT1, CRAT
