Gene: Fads2 (fatty acid desaturase 2) Mus musculus
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
