Gene: Elovl6 (ELOVL fatty acid elongase 6) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Elovl6
Name: ELOVL fatty acid elongase 6
CRRD ID: 620585
Description: Exhibits fatty acid elongase activity. Involved in fatty acid elongation, monounsaturated fatty acid and fatty acid elongation, saturated fatty acid. Predicted to localize to endoplasmic reticulum and integral component of endoplasmic reticulum membrane. Orthologous to human ELOVL6 (ELOVL fatty acid elongase 6); PARTICIPATES IN unsaturated fatty acid biosynthetic pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1-naphthyl isothiocyanate; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 17beta-estradiol.
Type: protein-coding
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; ELOVL family member 6, elongation of long chain fatty acids (yeast); fatty acid elongase 2; fatty acyl-CoA elongase; Lce2; long-chain fatty-acyl elongase; rELO2; very long chain 3-ketoacyl-CoA synthase 6; very long chain 3-oxoacyl-CoA synthase 6; very-long-chain 3-oxoacyl-CoA synthase 6
