Protein Information
Name ACOT13
Synonyms THEM2
Function Acyl-CoA thioesterases are a group of enzymes that catalyze the hydrolysis of acyl-CoAs to the free fatty acid and coenzyme A (CoASH), providing the potential to regulate intracellular levels of acyl-CoAs, free fatty acids and CoASH. Has acyl-CoA thioesterase activity towards medium (C12) and long-chain (C18) fatty acyl-CoA substrates. Can also hydrolyze 3- hydroxyphenylacetyl-CoA and 3,4-dihydroxyphenylacetyl-CoA (in vitro). May play a role in controlling adaptive thermogenesis (By similarity).
Cellular Location Cytoplasm, cytosol. Mitochondrion. Nucleus. Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton, spindle. Note=During interphase, found both in the nucleus and in the cytoplasm. At mitosis, localizes to the spindle. Colocalizes with tubulin (By similarity)

THEM2 Antibody: THEM2, also known as ACOT13, belongs to the hotdog-fold superfamily and possesses thioesterase activity, with greater activity observed with longer chain acyl-CoAs such as myristoyl- and palmitoyl-CoA. THEM2 is highly expressed in several tissues such as heart, kidney, liver and brain and has been shown to be co-localized with beta-tubulin on microtubules. THEM2 interacts with StarD, a protein that plays a key role in fatty acid metabolism, and the addition of StarD to THEM2 increased its catalytic activity, suggesting that THEM2 plays a significant role in the metabolism of fatty acids. At least two isoforms of THEM2 are known to exist.
