ACSL5 10:114133776-114188138

Forward strand gene: acyl-CoA synthetase long chain family member 5

Formerly known as: FACL5

Also known as: ACS2, ACS5, ENSG00000197142

Function: Catalyzes the conversion of long-chain fatty acids to their active form acyl-CoAs for both synthesis of cellular lipids, and degradation via beta-oxidation (PubMed:17681178, PubMed:24269233, PubMed:22633490). ACSL5 may activate fatty acids from exogenous sources for the synthesis… Source: UniProt
