Gene: ELOVL3 (ELOVL fatty acid elongase 3) Homo sapiens
Symbol: ELOVL3
Name: ELOVL fatty acid elongase 3
Description: This gene encodes a protein that belongs to the GNS1/SUR4 family. Members of this family play a role in elongation of long chain fatty acids to provide precursors for synthesis of sphingolipids and ceramides. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2013]
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: 3-keto acyl-CoA synthase ELOVL3; CIG-30; CIG30; cold-inducible glycoprotein of 30 kDa; elongation of very long chain fatty acids (FEN1/Elo2, SUR4/Elo3, yeast)-like 3; elongation of very long chain fatty acids protein 3; ELOVL FA elongase 3; MGC21435; very long chain 3-ketoacyl-CoA synthase 3; very long chain 3-oxoacyl-CoA synthase 3; very-long-chain 3-oxoacyl-CoA synthase 3
