    ..The family root symbol is ACOT, with human genes named ACOT1-ACOT12, and rat and mouse genes named Acot1-Acot12. Several of the ACOT genes are the result of splicing events, and these splice variants are cataloged. ..
  2. Hunt M, Rautanen A, Westin M, Svensson L, Alexson S. Analysis of the mouse and human acyl-CoA thioesterase (ACOT) gene clusters shows that convergent, functional evolution results in a reduced number of human peroxisomal ACOTs. FASEB J. 2006;20:1855-64 pubmed
    ..These data strongly suggest that the human ACOT4 gene has acquired the functions of three mouse genes by a functional convergent evolution that also provides an explanation for the unexpectedly low number of human genes. ..
