Gene: FAR1 (fatty acyl-CoA reductase 1) Homo sapiens
Symbol: FAR1
Name: fatty acyl-CoA reductase 1
Description: Exhibits fatty-acyl-CoA reductase (alcohol-forming) activity. Involved in ether lipid biosynthetic process; glycerophospholipid biosynthetic process; and long-chain fatty-acyl-CoA metabolic process. Localizes to integral component of peroxisomal membrane.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
