Gene: Slc27a2 (solute carrier family 27 (fatty acid transporter), member 2) Mus musculus
Symbol: Slc27a2
Name: solute carrier family 27 (fatty acid transporter), member 2
Description: Exhibits fatty acid ligase activity and lipid transporter activity. Involved in fatty acid transport; long-chain fatty acid metabolic process; and very long-chain fatty acid catabolic process. Localizes to the endoplasmic reticulum; peroxisome; and plasma membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including brain; genitourinary system; liver; lung; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human SLC27A2 (solute carrier family 27 member 2); PARTICIPATES IN phytanic acid degradation pathway; Refsum disease pathway; INTERACTS WITH 17beta-estradiol; 2,2',4,4',5,5'-hexachlorobiphenyl; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
