Gene: Slc27a4 (solute carrier family 27 member 4) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Slc27a4
Name: solute carrier family 27 member 4
Description: Predicted to have long-chain fatty acid transporter activity; long-chain fatty acid-CoA ligase activity; and very long-chain fatty acid-CoA ligase activity. Involved in response to nutrient. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including the brush border membrane; endoplasmic reticulum membrane; and microvillus. Biomarker of fatty liver disease. Orthologous to human SLC27A4 (solute carrier family 27 member 4); PARTICIPATES IN eicosanoid signaling pathway via peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma; INTERACTS WITH 2,4-dinitrotoluene; 4-amino-2,6-dinitrotoluene; bisphenol A.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: Fatp4; fatty acid transport protein 4; LOC311839; long-chain fatty acid transport protein 4; solute carrier family 27 (fatty acid transporter), member 4
