ACSS1 Important for maintaining normal body temperature during fasting and for energy homeostasis. Essential for energy expenditure under ketogenic conditions. Converts acetate to acetyl-CoA so that it can be used for oxidation through the tricarboxylic cycle to produce ATP and CO(2). Belongs to the ATP-dependent AMP-binding enzyme family. 4 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
