SLC27A3 encodes the human gene, Solute carrier family 27 (fatty acid transporter), member 3. It may also be known as: Long-chain fatty acid transport protein 3; Fatty acid transport protein 3; Solute carrier family 27 member 3; Very long-chain acyl-CoA synthetase homolog 3; VLCS-3; FATP-3; ACSVL3; FATP3. The encoded protein is an enzyme with an amino acid length of 730 and a mass of 78.6 kDa. Other isoforms may exist. SLC27A3 is a member of the ATP-dependent AMP-binding enzyme family. Homologs of this gene exist in other organisms, including: Mouse, Rat, Frog.
