Gene: Acsl3 (acyl-CoA synthetase long-chain family member 3) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Acsl3
Name: acyl-CoA synthetase long-chain family member 3
RGD ID: 70552
Description: Enables arachidonate-CoA ligase activity. Involved in fatty acid metabolic process; response to nutrient; and response to organic cyclic compound. Predicted to be located in Golgi apparatus and perinuclear region of cytoplasm. Predicted to be active in endoplasmic reticulum; lipid droplet; and plasma membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in asthma; breast cancer; and prostate cancer. Orthologous to human ACSL3 (acyl-CoA synthetase long chain family member 3); PARTICIPATES IN fatty acid beta degradation pathway; eicosanoid signaling pathway via peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma; fatty acid metabolic pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1-benzylpiperazine; 1-naphthyl isothiocyanate; 1-nitropropane.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
