Gene: Cel (carboxyl ester lipase) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Cel
Name: carboxyl ester lipase
Description: Exhibits glycosphingolipid binding activity and hydrolase activity, acting on ester bonds; predicted to be involved in several processes, including ceramide catabolic process, cholesterol catabolic process, and synapse assembly; localizes to several cellular components, including the cytoplasm, extracellular space, and membrane raft; orthologous to human CEL (carboxyl ester lipase); PARTICIPATES IN glycerolipid metabolic pathway; steroid biosynthetic pathway; INTERACTS WITH 2-ethoxyethanol; 2-methoxyethanol; ammonium chloride.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: Bal; bile salt-activated lipase; bile salt-stimulated lipase; Bssl; cholesterol esterase; pancreatic lysophospholipase; sterol esterase
