Secondary Accession Numbers None
Name Acyl-coenzyme A thioesterase THEM5
  1. Acyl-CoA thioesterase THEM5
  2. Acyl-coenzyme A thioesterase 15
  3. Thioesterase superfamily member 5
Gene Name THEM5
Protein Type Unknown
Biological Properties
General Function Not Available
Specific Function Has acyl-CoA thioesterase activity towards long-chain (C16 and C18) fatty acyl-CoA substrates, with a preference for linoleyl-CoA and other unsaturated long-chain fatty acid-CoA esters. Plays an important role in mitochondrial fatty acid metabolism, and in remodeling of the mitochondrial lipid cardiolipin. Required for normal mitochondrial function.
Pathways Not Available
hexadecanoyl-CoA + Water → Coenzyme A + Palmitic acid details
