Gene: Alox12b (arachidonate 12-lipoxygenase, 12R type) Mus musculus
Analyze
Symbol: Alox12b
Name: arachidonate 12-lipoxygenase, 12R type
Description: Exhibits arachidonate 12(S)-lipoxygenase activity; arachidonate 8(R)-lipoxygenase activity; and linoleate 9S-lipoxygenase activity. Involved in several processes, including ceramide biosynthetic process; establishment of skin barrier; and long-chain fatty acid metabolic process. Localizes to perinuclear region of cytoplasm. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal recessive congenital ichthyosis 2. Is expressed in cerebral cortex; gut epithelium; nasal cavity epithelium; and skin. Orthologous to human ALOX12B (arachidonate 12-lipoxygenase, 12R type).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: 12R-lipoxygenase; 12R-LOX; Aloxe2; arachidonate 12-lipoxygenase, 12R-type; e-LOX 2; e-LOX2; epidermis-type lipoxygenase 12; epidermis-type lipoxygenase 2; MGC130560
