Short name: Arylacetamide_deacetylase

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships



The lipase arylacetamide deacetylase is involved in the utilisation of triacylglycerol (TAG) for the assembly of very-low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) in the secretory apparatus of the hepatocyte, as the process is mobilized by lipolysis of the cytosolic TAG pool, followed by re-esterification [PMID: 14748713]. The enzyme competes with cytosolic arylamine N-acetyltransferase, which catalyses one of the initial biotransformation pathways for arylamine and heterocyclic amine carcinogens in many tissues in many species [PMID: 8063807].
