Protein Information (annotations from UniProt)

Database IDHIV0000028
UniProt IDP53396
Primary gene name(s)ACLY
Synonym gene name(s)unknown
Protein nameATP-citrate synthase
Protein functionATP-citrate synthase is the primary enzyme responsible for the synthesis of cytosolic acetyl-CoA in many tissues. Has a central role in de novo lipid synthesis. In nervous tissue it may be involved in the biosynthesis of acetylcholine. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:23932781}.
