Gene: SLC27A4 (solute carrier family 27 member 4) Homo sapiens
Symbol: SLC27A4
Name: solute carrier family 27 member 4
Description: Exhibits long-chain fatty acid-CoA ligase activity. Involved in long-chain fatty acid import into cell and long-chain fatty acid metabolic process. Localizes to the endoplasmic reticulum membrane. Biomarker of obesity.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: ACSVL4; FATP4; IPS; long-chain fatty acid transport protein 4; solute carrier family 27 (fatty acid transporter), member 4
