Symbol: Acsl6
Name: acyl-CoA synthetase long-chain family member 6
Description: ENCODES a protein that exhibits long-chain fatty acid-CoA ligase activity; protein homodimerization activity; enzyme binding (ortholog); INVOLVED IN cellular response to insulin stimulus; fatty acid transport; long-chain fatty acid metabolic process; PARTICIPATES IN fatty acid beta degradation pathway; eicosanoid signaling pathway via peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma; fatty acid metabolic pathway; ASSOCIATED WITH Diabetes Mellitus, Experimental; Inflammation; Amphetamine-Related Disorders (ortholog); FOUND IN nucleus; membrane (ortholog); mitochondrion (ortholog); INTERACTS WITH (S)-nicotine; 6-propyl-2-thiouracil; actinomycin D
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: Facl6; fatty acid Coenzyme A ligase, long chain 6; LACS 6; Lacsl; long-chain acyl-CoA synthetase 6; long-chain acyl-CoA synthetase-like; long-chain-fatty-acid--CoA ligase 6; long-chain-fatty-acid--CoA ligase, brain isozyme
