SLC27A6 is a symbol for the gene, Solute carrier family 27 (fatty acid transporter), member 6, in humans. Other names include: Long-chain fatty acid transport protein 6; Fatty acid transport protein 6; Fatty-acid-coenzyme A ligase, very long-chain 2; Solute carrier family 27 member 6; Very long-chain acyl-CoA synthetase homolog 1; VLCSH1; hVLCS-H1; FATP-6; ACSVL2; FACVL2; FATP6; VLCS-H1. The encoded protein has an amino acid length of 619 and a mass of 70.1 kDa. Other isoforms may exist. SLC27A6 is a member of the ATP-dependent AMP-binding enzyme family. This gene shares homology with other species, including: Mouse, Rat, Zebrafish, Frog, Chicken.
