HTE is an alias for the gene, Acyl-CoA thioesterase 8, in humans. Other names include: Acyl-coenzyme A thioesterase 8; Choloyl-coenzyme A thioesterase; HIV-Nef-associated acyl-CoA thioesterase; PTE-2; Peroxisomal acyl-coenzyme A thioester hydrolase 1; PTE-1; Peroxisomal long-chain acyl-CoA thioesterase 1; hACTE-III; hACTEIII; choloyl-CoA hydrolase; Nef (lentivirus myristoylated factor) associated protein 1; HNAACTE; PTE1. The encoded protein is an enzyme with an amino acid length of 319 and a mass of 35.9 kDa. Other isoforms may exist. HTE is a member of the C/M/P thioester hydrolase family. This gene shares homology with other species, including: Mouse, Rat, Zebrafish, Frog, Chicken.
