Literature associating ELOVL3 and fetal akinesia deformation sequence syndrome
Elongation of very long chain fatty acids protein 3; Catalyzes the first and rate-limiting reaction of the four 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 with higher activity toward C18 acyl-CoAs, especially C18:0 acyl-CoAs. 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.
Synonyms: ELOVL3, ELOVL3p, hELOVL3, Q9HB03, CIG30 ...
