Gene: Slc27a5 (solute carrier family 27 (fatty acid transporter), member 5) Mus musculus
Symbol: Slc27a5
Name: solute carrier family 27 (fatty acid transporter), member 5
Description: Exhibits cholate-CoA ligase activity and fatty acid transmembrane transporter activity. Involved in several processes, including ketone body biosynthetic process; long-chain fatty acid import across plasma membrane; and triglyceride mobilization. Localizes to the basal plasma membrane. Is expressed in liver. Orthologous to human SLC27A5 (solute carrier family 27 member 5); PARTICIPATES IN bile acid biosynthetic pathway; cerebrotendinous xanthomatosis pathway; congenital bile acid synthesis defect pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1-naphthyl isothiocyanate; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
