Gene: Slc27a6 (solute carrier family 27 member 6) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Slc27a6
Name: solute carrier family 27 member 6
Description: Predicted to have long-chain fatty acid transporter activity; long-chain fatty acid-CoA ligase activity; and very long-chain fatty acid-CoA ligase activity. Predicted to be involved in long-chain fatty acid metabolic process and long-chain fatty acid transport. Predicted to localize to integral component of membrane. Biomarker of myocardial infarction. Orthologous to human SLC27A6 (solute carrier family 27 member 6); PARTICIPATES IN eicosanoid signaling pathway via peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma; INTERACTS WITH bisphenol A; furan; genistein.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: LOC291582; long-chain fatty acid transport protein 6; solute carrier family 27 (fatty acid transporter), member 6
