FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene belongs to the ELO family. It is highly expressed in the adrenal gland and testis, and encodes a multi-pass membrane protein that is localized in the endoplasmic reticulum. This protein is involved in the elongation of long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids. Mutations in this gene have been associated with spinocerebellar ataxia-38 (SCA38). Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2014]
PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for a gene trapped allele have defects in fatty acid synthesis in the liver that result in hepatic steatosis. Also, majority of female mice have defects in female fertility. [provided by MGI curators]
