UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for ACAD11 Gene
Acyl-CoA dehydrogenase, that exhibits maximal activity towards saturated C22-CoA (PubMed:21237683). Probably participates to beta-oxydation and energy production but could also play role in the metabolism of specific fatty acids to control fatty acids composition of cellular lipids in brain (Probable).
