FAA2 / YER015W Sequence

Sequences and genome annotation information for Reference Strain S288C and a select set of Alternative References.


Aliases
FAM1 8
Protein Product
medium-chain fatty acid-CoA ligase FAA2
Feature Type
ORF , Verified
Description
Medium chain fatty acyl-CoA synthetase; activates imported fatty acids; accepts a wide range of fatty acid chain lengths with a preference for medium chains, C9:0-C13:0; localized to the peroxisome; comparative analysis suggests that a mitochondrially targeted form may result from translation starting at a non-canonical codon upstream of the annotated start codon 2 3 4
EC Number
6.2.1.3
