Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits palmitoleoyltransferase activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including positive regulation of fatty acid beta-oxidation; protein homooligomerization; and regulation of insulin secretion. Localizes to the mitochondrial inner membrane. Used to study carnitine palmitoyltransferase I deficiency. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in carnitine palmitoyltransferase I deficiency and lipid metabolism disorder. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; integumental system; sensory organ; and urinary system. Orthologous to human CPT1A (carnitine palmitoyltransferase 1A).
