ACSBG2 (Acyl-CoA Synthetase Bubblegum Family Member 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Fatty acid biosynthesis (KEGG) and Adipocytokine signaling pathway. Gene Ontology (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 Summary for ACSBG2 Gene
Catalyzes the conversion of fatty acids such as long chain and very long-chain fatty acids to their active form acyl-CoAs for both synthesis of cellular lipids, and degradation via beta-oxidation. Can activate diverse saturated, monosaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids (PubMed:16371355, PubMed:16762313). Has increased ability to activate oleic and linoleic acid (PubMed:16371355). May play a role in spermatogenesis (PubMed:15685348).
