Protein Overview: Peroxisomal acyl-coenzyme A oxidase 1

Catalyzes the desaturation of acyl-CoAs to 2-trans-enoyl-CoAs. Isoform 1 shows highest activity against medium-chain fatty acyl-CoAs and activity decreases with increasing chain length. Isoform 2 is active against a much broader range of substrates and shows activity towards very long-chain acyl-CoAs. Isoform 2 is twice as active as isoform 1 against 16-hydroxy-palmitoyl-CoA and is 25% more active against 1,16-hexadecanodioyl-CoA.

Synonyms: AOX 1, Long-chain acyl-CoA oxidase, AtCX1

Gene names: ACX1, ACOX1
