Symbol: Slc27a5
Name: solute carrier family 27 member 5
Description: ENCODES a protein that exhibits cholate-CoA ligase activity; protein-containing complex binding; fatty acid transmembrane transporter activity (ortholog); INVOLVED IN bile acid metabolic process; bile acid biosynthetic process (ortholog); fatty acid transport (ortholog); PARTICIPATES IN bile acid biosynthetic pathway; cerebrotendinous xanthomatosis disease pathway; congenital bile acid synthesis defect pathway; FOUND IN intracellular membrane-bounded organelle; protein-containing complex; basal plasma membrane (ortholog); INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 6-propyl-2-thiouracil; ammonium chloride
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: BA-CoA ligase; BACS; BAL; bile acid CoA ligase; bile acid-CoA ligase; bile acyl-CoA synthetase; cholate--CoA ligase; FATP-5; fatty acid transport protein 5; LOC79111; rBAL-1; solute carrier family 27 (fatty acid transporter), member 5; very long-chain acyl-CoA synthetase-related protein; VLACS-related; VLACSR
