THEM2, also known as ACOT13, belongs to the hotdog-fold superfamily and possesses thioesterase activity, with greater activity observed with longer chain acyl-CoAs such as myristoyl- and palmitoyl-CoA. THEM2 is highly expressed in several tissues such as heart, kidney, liver and brain and has been shown to be co-localized with beta-tubulin on microtubules. THEM2 interacts with StarD, a protein that plays a key role in fatty acid metabolism, and the addition of StarD to THEM2 increased its catalytic activity, suggesting that THEM2 plays a significant role in the metabolism of fatty acids. At least two isoforms of THEM2 are known to exist.
