Gene: ELOVL4 (ELOVL fatty acid elongase 4) Homo sapiens
Symbol: ELOVL4
Name: ELOVL fatty acid elongase 4
Description: Predicted to have fatty acid elongase activity. Involved in fatty acid elongation, saturated fatty acid and very long-chain fatty acid biosynthetic process. Localizes to endoplasmic reticulum and integral component of endoplasmic reticulum membrane. Implicated in corneal dystrophy and spinocerebellar ataxia type 34.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
