ACOT12 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. Acyl-coenzyme A thioesterase 12/ACOT12 preferentially hydrolyzes acetyl-CoA. 2 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
