Reverse strand gene: acyl-CoA synthetase long chain family member 6

Formerly known as: FACL6

Also known as: LACS2, LACS5, ACS2, KIAA0837, ENSG00000164398

Function: Catalyzes the conversion of long-chain fatty acids to their active form acyl-CoA for both synthesis of cellular lipids, and degradation via beta-oxidation (PubMed:22633490, PubMed:24269233). Plays an important role in fatty acid metabolism in brain and the acyl-CoAs produced may … Source: UniProt
