Gene: Elovl6 (ELOVL family member 6, elongation of long chain fatty acids (yeast)) Mus musculus
Symbol: Elovl6
Name: ELOVL family member 6, elongation of long chain fatty acids (yeast)
Description: Exhibits transferase activity, transferring acyl groups other than amino-acyl groups. Involved in fatty acid elongation and positive regulation of cold-induced thermogenesis. Localizes to the integral component of endoplasmic reticulum membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; genitourinary system; nervous system; respiratory system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human ELOVL6 (ELOVL fatty acid elongase 6); INTERACTS WITH 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 17beta-estradiol; 2,2',4,4',5,5'-hexachlorobiphenyl.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: 3-keto acyl-CoA synthase Elovl6; C77826; elongation of very long chain fatty acids protein 6; ELOVL FA elongase 6; ELOVL fatty acid elongase 6; FAE; fatty acyl-CoA elongase; FEN1/Elo2, SUR4/Elo3-like; LCE; long chain fatty acid elongase; long chain fatty acyl elongase; MGC107467; myelin-associated SUR4 protein; very long chain 3-ketoacyl-CoA synthase 6; very long chain 3-oxoacyl-CoA synthase 6; very-long-chain 3-oxoacyl-CoA synthase 6
