Gene/ORF F11E6.5 (elo-2) Ace View of F11E6.5
F11E6.5 Details Help
Description  The elo-2 gene encodes a palmitic acid elongase, homologous to polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) elongases such as ELO-1, that is required for normally rapid growth, normally large body size, fertility, and for the quantitative regulation of the ultradian defecation rhythm; the joint action of ELO-2 with ELO-1 is strongly required for 20-carbon PUFA production and for general viability; elo-2 is most strongly expressed in intestinal cells, as well as other tissues such as the ventral nerve cord, pharyngeal muscles, uterus, and tail.
Homology Group (KOG)  Long chain fatty acid elongase
GO Terms  integral to membrane (GO:0016021)
