Symbol/Gene Name: SLC27A4
Alias: Long-chain fatty acid transport protein 4,FATP-4,Fatty acid transport protein 4,Arachidonate--CoA ligase,Long-chain-fatty-acid--CoA ligase,Solute carrier family 27 member 4,Very long-chain acyl-CoA synthetase 4,ACSVL4
Background: Involved in translocation of long-chain fatty acids (LFCA) across the plasma membrane (PubMed:12556534, PubMed:21395585). Has acyl-CoA ligase activity for long-chain and very-long-chain fatty acids (VLCFAs) (PubMed:24269233). Appears to be the principal fatty acid transporter in small intestinal enterocytes. Plays a role in the formation of the epidermal barrier. Required for fat absorption in early embryogenesis (By similarity). Probably involved in fatty acid transport across the blood barrier (PubMed:21395585). Indirectly inhibits RPE65 via substrate competition and via production of VLCFA derivatives like lignoceroyl-CoA. Prevents light-induced degeneration of rods and cones (By similarity).
Expression Host: Insect cell
