Gene: Acsl3 (acyl-CoA synthetase long-chain family member 3) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Acsl3
Name: acyl-CoA synthetase long-chain family member 3
Description: ENCODES a protein that exhibits long-chain fatty acid-CoA ligase activity; protein domain specific binding (ortholog); protein kinase binding (ortholog); INVOLVED IN brain development; fatty acid biosynthetic process; response to nutrient; PARTICIPATES IN fatty acid beta degradation pathway; eicosanoid signaling pathway via peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma; fatty acid metabolic pathway; FOUND IN endoplasmic reticulum (ortholog); Golgi apparatus (ortholog); lipid droplet (ortholog); INTERACTS WITH 1-benzylpiperazine; 1-nitropropane; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: Acs3; brain acyl-CoA synthetase II; Facl3; fatty acid Coenzyme A ligase, long chain 3; LACS 3; long-chain acyl-CoA synthetase 3; long-chain-fatty-acid--CoA ligase 3
