Gene: Fads2 (fatty acid desaturase 2) Mus musculus
Analyze
Symbol: Fads2
Name: fatty acid desaturase 2
Description: Exhibits stearoyl-CoA 9-desaturase activity. Predicted to be involved in fatty acid biosynthetic process and oxidation-reduction process. Predicted to localize to membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including adrenal gland; genitourinary system; and nervous system. Orthologous to human FADS2 (fatty acid desaturase 2); PARTICIPATES IN alpha-linoleic acid metabolic pathway; linoleic acid metabolic pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1,1-dichloroethene; 1,2-dichloroethane; 2,2',4,4'-Tetrabromodiphenyl ether.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: 2900042M13Rik; acyl-CoA 6-desaturase; D6D; delta(6) desaturase; delta(6) fatty acid desaturase; delta-6 desaturase; delta-6 fatty acid desaturase; Fad; Fads2a; Fadsd2
