Gene: ELOVL6 (ELOVL fatty acid elongase 6) Homo sapiens
Symbol: ELOVL6
Name: ELOVL fatty acid elongase 6
Description: Predicted to have fatty acid elongase activity. Involved in fatty acid elongation, saturated fatty acid and long-chain fatty acid biosynthetic process. Localizes to the endoplasmic reticulum.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: 3-keto acyl-CoA synthase ELOVL6; elongation of very long chain fatty acids protein 6; ELOVL FA elongase 6; ELOVL family member 6, elongation of long chain fatty acids (FEN1/Elo2, SUR4/Elo3-like, yeast); FACE; FAE; fatty acid elongase 2; fatty acyl-CoA elongase; FLJ23378; hELO2; LCE; long-chain fatty-acyl elongase; MGC5487; very long chain 3-ketoacyl-CoA synthase 6; very long chain 3-oxoacyl-CoA synthase 6; very-long-chain 3-oxoacyl-CoA synthase 6
