Gene: Far2 (fatty acyl CoA reductase 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Far2
Name: fatty acyl CoA reductase 2
RGD ID: 1565966
Description: Predicted to have fatty-acyl-CoA reductase (alcohol-forming) activity. Predicted to be involved in long-chain fatty-acyl-CoA metabolic process. Predicted to localize to integral component of peroxisomal membrane. Orthologous to human FAR2 (fatty acyl-CoA reductase 2); INTERACTS WITH benzo[a]pyrene; bisphenol A; glyphosate.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: MODEL
Also known as: fatty acyl-CoA reductase 2; LOC500368; male sterility domain containing 1; Mlstd1; RGD1565966; similar to male sterility domain containing 1
