ECHS1 enoyl-CoA hydratase, short chain 1

Gene ID: 1892, updated on 25-Jan-2022
Gene type: protein coding
Also known as: SCEH; ECHS1D

Summary

The protein encoded by this gene functions in the second step of the mitochondrial fatty acid beta-oxidation pathway. It catalyzes the hydration of 2-trans-enoyl-coenzyme A (CoA) intermediates to L-3-hydroxyacyl-CoAs. The gene product is a member of the hydratase/isomerase superfamily. It localizes to the mitochondrial matrix. Transcript variants utilizing alternative transcription initiation sites have been described in the literature. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
