Exhibits long-chain fatty acid-CoA ligase activity and very long-chain fatty acid-CoA ligase activity. Involved in several processes, including fatty acid metabolic process; fatty acid transport; and negative regulation of all-trans-retinyl-ester hydrolase, 11-cis retinol forming activity. Localizes to brush border membrane; endoplasmic reticulum; and microvillus. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; eye; liver; nervous system; and urinary system.
