Name Elongation of very long chain fatty acids protein 7
  1. 3-keto acyl-CoA synthase ELOVL7
  2. ELOVL fatty acid elongase 7
  3. Very-long-chain 3-oxoacyl-CoA synthase 7
  4. ELOVL FA elongase 7
Gene Name ELOVL7
Protein Type Unknown
Biological Properties
General Function Not Available
Specific Function Condensing enzyme that catalyzes the synthesis of saturated and polyunsaturated very long chain fatty acids. Highest activity toward C18 acyl-CoAs, especially C18:3(n-3) acyl-CoAs and C18:3(n-6)-CoAs. Also active toward C20:4-, C18:0-, C18:1-, C18:2- and C16:0-CoAs, and weakly toward C20:0-CoA. Little or no activity toward C22:0-, C24:0-, or C26:0-CoAs.
