Gene: Fads1 (fatty acid desaturase 1) Mus musculus
Symbol: Fads1
Name: fatty acid desaturase 1
Description: Predicted to have linoleoyl-CoA desaturase activity. Predicted to be involved in cellular response to starvation and fatty acid metabolic process. Predicted to localize to the nucleus. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; eye; genitourinary system; nervous system; and respiratory system. Orthologous to human FADS1 (fatty acid desaturase 1); PARTICIPATES IN alpha-linoleic acid metabolic pathway; linoleic acid metabolic pathway; INTERACTS WITH 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 3,3',4,4',5-pentachlorobiphenyl.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
