Gene: Elovl3 (elongation of very long chain fatty acids (FEN1/Elo2, SUR4/Elo3, yeast)-like 3) Mus musculus
Symbol: Elovl3
Name: elongation of very long chain fatty acids (FEN1/Elo2, SUR4/Elo3, yeast)-like 3
Description: Predicted to have fatty acid elongase activity. Involved in fatty acid biosynthetic process and positive regulation of cold-induced thermogenesis. Predicted to localize to the endoplasmic reticulum and integral component of endoplasmic reticulum membrane. Is expressed in brown fat; embryo; head; and skin. Orthologous to human ELOVL3 (ELOVL fatty acid elongase 3); INTERACTS WITH (R)-noradrenaline; 17beta-estradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: 3-keto acyl-CoA synthase Elovl3; Cig30; CIN-2; cold inducible glycoprotein 30; cold-inducible glycoprotein of 30 kDa; elongation of very long chain fatty acids protein 3; elongation of very long chain fatty acids-like 3; ELOVL FA elongase 3; ELOVL fatty acid elongase 3; very long chain 3-ketoacyl-CoA synthase 3; very long chain 3-oxoacyl-CoA synthase 3; very-long-chain 3-oxoacyl-CoA synthase 3
