Protein Overview: Cytosolic acyl coenzyme A thioester hydrolase

Acyl-CoA thioesterases are a group of enzymes that catalyze the hydrolysis of acyl-CoAs to the free fatty acid and coenzyme A (CoASH), providing the potential to regulate intracellular levels of acyl-CoAs, free fatty acids and CoASH. May play an important physiological function in brain. May play a regulatory role by modulating the cellular levels of fatty acyl-CoA ligands for certain transcription factors as well as the substrates for fatty acid metabolizing enzymes, contributing to lipid homeostasis. Has broad specificity, active towards fatty acyl-CoAs with chain-lengths of C8-C18. Has a maximal activity toward palmitoyl-CoA.

Synonyms: Acyl-CoA thioesterase 7, Brain acyl-CoA hydrolase, BACH, CTE-IIa, CTE-II, Long chain acyl-CoA thioester hydrolase

Gene name: Acot7
