Gene: Elovl2 (ELOVL fatty acid elongase 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Elovl2
Name: ELOVL fatty acid elongase 2
Description: ENCODES a protein that exhibits fatty acid elongase activity (ortholog); transferase activity, transferring acyl groups other than amino-acyl groups (ortholog); INVOLVED IN fatty acid elongation, polyunsaturated fatty acid (ortholog); very long-chain fatty acid biosynthetic process (ortholog); very long-chain fatty acid metabolic process (ortholog); PARTICIPATES IN unsaturated fatty acid biosynthetic pathway; ASSOCIATED WITH male infertility (ortholog); FOUND IN endoplasmic reticulum (ortholog); INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 3-chloropropane-1,2-diol; acrylamide
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: 3-keto acyl-CoA synthase Elovl2; elongation of very long chain fatty acids (FEN1/Elo2, SUR4/Elo3, yeast)-like 2; elongation of very long chain fatty acids protein 2; elongation of very long chain fatty acids-like 2; ELOVL FA elongase 2; LOC361231; very long chain 3-ketoacyl-CoA synthase 2; very long chain 3-oxoacyl-CoA synthase 2; very-long-chain 3-oxoacyl-CoA synthase 2
