Gene: Elovl5 (ELOVL family member 5, elongation of long chain fatty acids (yeast)) Mus musculus
Symbol: Elovl5
Name: ELOVL family member 5, elongation of long chain fatty acids (yeast)
Description: Predicted to have fatty acid elongase activity. Predicted to be involved in fatty acid biosynthetic process; positive regulation of fatty acid biosynthetic process; and sphingolipid biosynthetic process. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including the dendritic tree; integral component of endoplasmic reticulum membrane; and neuronal cell body. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in spinocerebellar ataxia type 38. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; genitourinary system; respiratory system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human ELOVL5 (ELOVL fatty acid elongase 5); PARTICIPATES IN alpha-linoleic acid metabolic pathway; linoleic acid metabolic pathway; INTERACTS WITH 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 2,3,7,8-Tetrachlorodibenzofuran.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
