Gene: Elovl2 (ELOVL fatty acid elongase 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Elovl2
Name: ELOVL fatty acid elongase 2
Description: Predicted to have fatty acid elongase activity. Predicted to be involved in fatty acid biosynthetic process and sphingolipid biosynthetic process. Predicted to localize to the endoplasmic reticulum and integral component of endoplasmic reticulum membrane. Orthologous to human ELOVL2 (ELOVL fatty acid elongase 2); PARTICIPATES IN unsaturated fatty acid biosynthetic pathway; INTERACTS WITH (+)-schisandrin B; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 3-chloropropane-1,2-diol.
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
