Acyl-CoA wax alcohol acyltransferase 1

Gene

AWAT1

Organism
Homo sapiens (Human)
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: Annotation score: 4 out of 5-Experimental evidence at protein leveli

Functioni

Acyltransferase that predominantly esterify long chain (wax) alcohols with acyl-CoA-derived fatty acids to produce wax esters. Wax esters are enriched in sebum, suggesting that it plays a central role in lipid metabolism in skin. Has a preference for arachidyl alcohol as well as decyl alcohol, demonstrating its relatively poor activity using saturated long chain alcohols (C16, C18, and C20).1 Publication

Catalytic activityi

Acyl-CoA + a long-chain alcohol = CoA + a long-chain ester.

    Expressioni

    Tissue specificityi

    Predominantly expressed in skin, where it is limited to the sebaceous gland. Expressed in more mature, centrally located cells just before their rupture and sebum release. Also expressed in all tissues except spleen. Expressed at higher level in thymus, prostate and testis.1 Publication
