Secondary Accession Numbers None
Name Acyl-coenzyme A thioesterase THEM4
  1. Acyl-CoA thioesterase THEM4
  2. Carboxyl-terminal modulator protein
  3. Thioesterase superfamily member 4
Gene Name THEM4
Protein Type Unknown
Biological Properties
General Function Not Available
Specific Function Has acyl-CoA thioesterase activity towards medium and long-chain (C14 to C18) fatty acyl-CoA substrates, and probably plays an role in mitochondrial fatty acid metabolism. Plays a role in the apoptotic process, possibly via its regulation of AKT1 activity. According to PubMed:11598301, inhibits AKT1 phosphorylation and activity. According to PubMed:17615157, enhances AKT1 activity by favoring its phosphorylation and translocation to plasma membrane.
