GeneCards Summary for ELOVL6 Gene

ELOVL6 (ELOVL Fatty Acid Elongase 6) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ELOVL6 include Cholecystolithiasis and Occupational Dermatitis. Among its related pathways are Fatty Acyl-CoA Biosynthesis and Regulation of cholesterol biosynthesis by SREBP (SREBF). Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include transferase activity and transferase activity, transferring acyl groups other than amino-acyl groups. An important paralog of this gene is ELOVL3.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for ELOVL6 Gene

  • Catalyzes the first and rate-limiting reaction of the four reactions that constitute the long-chain fatty acids elongation cycle. This endoplasmic reticulum-bound enzymatic process allows the addition of 2 carbons to the chain of long- and very long-chain fatty acids (VLCFAs) per cycle. Condensing enzyme that elongates fatty acids with 12, 14 and 16 carbons with higher activity toward C16:0 acyl-CoAs. Catalyzes the synthesis of unsaturated C16 long chain fatty acids and, to a lesser extent, C18:0 and those with low desaturation degree. May participate in the production of saturated and monounsaturated VLCFAs of different chain lengths that are involved in multiple biological processes as precursors of membrane lipids and lipid mediators.
