Gene: Elovl5 (ELOVL fatty acid elongase 5) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Elovl5
Name: ELOVL fatty acid elongase 5
Description: Exhibits fatty acid elongase activity. Involved in fatty acid elongation, polyunsaturated fatty acid and very long-chain fatty acid biosynthetic process. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including the dendritic tree; integral component of endoplasmic reticulum membrane; and neuronal cell body. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in spinocerebellar ataxia type 38. Orthologous to human ELOVL5 (ELOVL fatty acid elongase 5); PARTICIPATES IN alpha-linoleic acid metabolic pathway; linoleic acid metabolic pathway; unsaturated fatty acid biosynthetic pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1-naphthyl isothiocyanate; 17beta-estradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: 3-keto acyl-CoA synthase Elovl5; elongation of long chain fatty acids family member 5; elongation of very long chain fatty acids protein 5; elongation of very long chain fatty acids-like 5; ELOVL FA elongase 5; ELOVL family member 5, elongation of long chain fatty acids; ELOVL family member 5, elongation of long chain fatty acids (yeast); fatty acid elongase 1; rELO1; very long chain 3-ketoacyl-CoA synthase 5; very long chain 3-oxoacyl-CoA synthase 5; very-long-chain 3-oxoacyl-CoA synthase 5
