MBOAT1 Gene

membrane bound O-acyltransferase domain containing 1

This gene belongs to the membrane-bound O-acetyltransferase superfamily. The encoded transmembrane protein is an enzyme that transfers organic compounds, preferably from oleoyl-CoA, to hydroxyl groups of protein targets in membranes. A translocation disrupting this gene may be associated with brachydactyly syndactyly syndrome. Alternately spliced transcript variants have been described for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2012]
