GeneCards Summary for ACSBG2 Gene
ACSBG2 (Acyl-CoA Synthetase Bubblegum Family Member 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Metabolism and Regulation of lipid metabolism by Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor alpha (PPARalpha). GO annotations related to this gene include long-chain fatty acid-CoA ligase activity and acyl-CoA hydrolase activity. An important paralog of this gene is ACSBG1.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ACSBG2 Gene
Mediates activation of long-chain fatty acids for both synthesis of cellular lipids, and degradation via beta-oxidation. Able to activate long-chain fatty acids. Also able to activate very long-chain fatty acids; however, the relevance of such activity is unclear in vivo. Has increased ability to activate oleic and linoleic acid. May play a role in spermatogenesis
