  1. Identity was determined using BLASTP and non-redundant human protein sequences. The predominant isoform sequences were used for ACOTs having multiple protein variants. Homology was considered not significant and left blank if the observed identity was less than 15 per cent
  2. Abbreviations: BAAT, bile acid CoA:amino acid N-acyltransferase; THEM, thioesterase superfamily member
