Gene information for ACOT8 (Homo sapiens)
(Information is obtained from NCBI Gene database)
Entrez gene ID10005
Official gene symbolACOT8
Full nameacyl-CoA thioesterase 8
Gene summaryThe protein encoded by this gene is a peroxisomal thioesterase that appears to be involved more in the oxidation of fatty acids rather than in their formation. The encoded protein can bind to the human immunodeficiency virus-1 protein Nef, and mediate Nef-induced down-regulation of CD4 in T-cells. [provided by RefSeq]
