Gene name

AWAT1 (HGNC Symbol)

Synonyms

DGAT2L3

Description

acyl-CoA wax alcohol acyltransferase 1 (HGNC Symbol)

Entrez gene summary

The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the diacylglycerol acyltransferase family. It esterifies long chain (wax) alcohols with acyl-CoA-derived fatty acids to produce wax esters. Wax esters are enriched in sebum, suggesting that this enzyme plays a central role in lipid metabolism in skin. Consistent with this observation, this protein is predominantly expressed in the sebaceous gland of the skin. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2009]
