S27A4_HUMAN (UniProt)

Gene names: SLC27A4, ACSVL4, FATP4
Protein names and data: S27A4_HUMAN, Full=Long-chain fatty acid transport protein 4;Short=FATP-4;Short=Fatty acid transport protein 4;EC=6.2.1.-, Full=Solute carrier family 27 member 4; Length: 643 a.a., Mass: 72064 Da,
fasta formatted sequence

Function: Involved in translocation of long-chain fatty acids (LFCA) across the plasma membrane. Appears to be the principal fatty acid transporter in small intestinal enterocytes. Plays a role in the formation of the epidermal barrier. Required for fat absorption in early embryogenesis. Has acyl-CoA ligase activity for long-chain and very-long-chain fatty acids (By similarity)
Cellular location: Membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein (Probable)
Tissue specificity: Expressed at highest levels in brain, testis, colon and kidney. Expressed at medium levels in heart and liver, small intestine and stomach. Expressed at low levels in peripheral leukocytes, bone marrow, skeletal muscle and aorta. Expressed in adipose tissue
