ACACA Information: ACACA Protein, ACACA Antibody and ACACA Gene

ACACA Protein

ACACA protein function

Catalyzes the rate-limiting reaction in the biogenesis of long-chain fatty acids. Carries out three functions: biotin carboxyl carrier protein, biotin carboxylase and carboxyltransferase.

ACACA protein expression

Tissue specificity

Expressed in brain, placental, skeletal muscle, renal, pancreatic and adipose tissues; expressed at low level in pulmonary tissue; not detected in the liver.
