Human Gene ACOT7 (ENST00000377855.6) from GENCODE V44
Description: Homo sapiens acyl-CoA thioesterase 7 (ACOT7), transcript variant hBACHb, mRNA. (from RefSeq NM_181864) RefSeq Summary (NM_181864): This gene encodes a member of the acyl coenzyme family. The encoded protein hydrolyzes the CoA thioester of palmitoyl-CoA and other long-chain fatty acids. Decreased expression of this gene may be associated with mesial temporal lobe epilepsy. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms with different subcellular locations have been characterized. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008].

ID:BACH_HUMAN DESCRIPTION: RecName: Full=Cytosolic acyl coenzyme A thioester hydrolase; EC=220.127.116.11; AltName: Full=Acyl-CoA thioesterase 7; AltName: Full=Brain acyl-CoA hydrolase; Short=BACH; AltName: Full=CTE-IIa; Short=CTE-II; AltName: Full=Long chain acyl-CoA thioester hydrolase; FUNCTION: 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. CATALYTIC ACTIVITY: Palmitoyl-CoA + H(2)O = CoA + palmitate. SUBUNIT: Homohexamer (By similarity). SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Isoform 4: Cytoplasm. SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Isoform 6: Cytoplasm. SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Isoform 1: Mitochondrion. SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Isoform 5: Mitochondrion. TISSUE SPECIFICITY: Isoform 4 is expressed exclusively in brain. DOMAIN: Both hydrolase domains are required for efficient activity (By similarity). SIMILARITY: Contains 2 acyl coenzyme A hydrolase domains.

The RNAfold program from the Vienna RNA Package is used to perform the secondary structure predictions and folding calculations. The estimated folding energy is in kcal/mol. The more negative the energy, the more secondary structure the RNA is likely to have.
ModBase Predicted Comparative 3D Structure on O00154
The pictures above may be empty if there is no ModBase structure for the protein. The ModBase structure frequently covers just a fragment of the protein. You may be asked to log onto ModBase the first time you click on the pictures. It is simplest after logging in to just click on the picture again to get to the specific info on that model.
Orthologous Genes in Other Species
Orthologies between human, mouse, and rat are computed by taking the best BLASTP hit, and filtering out non-syntenic hits. For more distant species reciprocal-best BLASTP hits are used. Note that the absence of an ortholog in the table below may reflect incomplete annotations in the other species rather than a true absence of the orthologous gene.
