Description
Enables fatty acid elongase activity. Acts upstream of or within fatty acid elongation, unsaturated fatty acid; long-chain fatty acid biosynthetic process; and very long-chain fatty acid biosynthetic process. Predicted to be integral component of plasma membrane. Predicted to be integral component of endoplasmic reticulum membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including blood; digestive system; fat cell; pleuroperitoneal region; and yolk syncytial layer. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in spinocerebellar ataxia type 38. Orthologous to human ELOVL5 (ELOVL fatty acid elongase 5).
