ACSL5 (Q9ULC5) - Overview - Molecular Target Synopsis
ACSL5, Long-chain-fatty-acid--CoA ligase 5
Enzyme Classification 188.8.131.52
Also Known as ACSL5_HUMAN, ACSL5, ACS5, FACL5
Acyl-CoA synthetases (ACSL) activate long-chain fatty acids for both synthesis of cellular lipids, and degradation via beta-oxidation. ACSL5 may activate fatty acids from exogenous sources for the synthesis of triacylglycerol destined for intracellular storage (By similarity). Utilizes a wide range of saturated fatty acids with a preference for C16-C18 unsaturated fatty acids (By similarity). It was suggested that it may also stimulate fatty acid oxidation (By similarity). At the villus tip of the crypt-villus axis of the small intestine may sensitize epithelial cells to apoptosis specifically triggered by the death ligand TRAIL. May have a role in the survival of glioma cells.
