S27A6_HUMAN (UniProt)

Gene names: SLC27A6, ACSVL2, FACVL2, FATP1
Protein names and data: S27A6_HUMAN, Full=Long-chain fatty acid transport protein 6;Short=FATP-6;Short=Fatty acid transport protein 6, Full=Fatty-acid-coenzyme A ligase, very long-chain 2;Full=Solute carrier family 27 member 6;Full=Very long-chain acyl-CoA synthetase homolog 1;Short=VLCSH1;Short=hVLCS-H1; Length: 619 a.a., Mass: 70112 Da,
fasta formatted sequence

Function: Involved in translocation of long-chain fatty acids (LFCA) across the plasma membrane. Thought to function as the predominant fatty acid protein transporter in heart
Cellular location: Membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein (Potential). Cell membrane, sarcolemma (By similarity). Note=In heart is exclusively located on the sarcolemma in areas juxtaposed with small blood vessels where it colocalizes CD36 (By similarity)
Tissue specificity: Strongly expressed in heart and localizes to cardiac myocytes. Expressed at moderate levels in placenta, testis, and adrenal glands. Expressed at very low levels in kidney, bladder and uterus
