Gene: Acsl4 (acyl-CoA synthetase long-chain family member 4) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Acsl4
Name: acyl-CoA synthetase long-chain family member 4
Description: ENCODES a protein that exhibits long-chain fatty acid-CoA ligase activity; arachidonate-CoA ligase activity (ortholog); very long-chain fatty acid-CoA ligase activity (ortholog); INVOLVED IN dendritic spine development; fatty acid transport; long-chain fatty-acyl-CoA biosynthetic process; PARTICIPATES IN fatty acid beta degradation pathway; eicosanoid signaling pathway via peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma; fatty acid metabolic pathway; ASSOCIATED WITH Animal Disease Models (ortholog); Erythema (ortholog); Experimental Arthritis (ortholog); FOUND IN endoplasmic reticulum; mitochondrial membrane; neuronal cell body; INTERACTS WITH 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 17beta-estradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: Acs4; Facl4; fatty acid Coenzyme A ligase, long chain 4; fatty acid-Coenzyme A ligase long chain 4; fatty acid-Coenzyme A ligase, long chain 4; LACS 4; long-chain acyl-CoA synthetase 4; long-chain-fatty-acid--CoA ligase 4
