Gene name

AWAT2 (HGNC Symbol)

Synonyms

DGAT2L4, MFAT

Description

acyl-CoA wax alcohol acyltransferase 2 (HGNC Symbol)

Entrez gene summary

This gene encodes an enzyme belonging to the diacylglycerol acyltransferase family. This enzyme produces wax esters by the esterification of long chain (or wax) alcohols with acyl-CoA-derived fatty acids. It functions in lipid metabolism in the skin, mostly in undifferentiated peripheral sebocytes. This enzyme may also have acyl-CoA:retinol acyltransferase activities, where it catalyzes the synthesis of diacylglycerols and retinyl esters. [provided by RefSeq, May 2010]
