Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.0.0)
Predicted to enable malonyl-CoA synthetase activity and very long-chain fatty acid-CoA ligase activity. Predicted to be involved in fatty acid biosynthetic process and malonate catabolic process. Predicted to act upstream of or within lipid metabolic process. Located in mitochondrion. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in combined malonic and methylmalonic acidemia. Orthologous to human ACSF3 (acyl-CoA synthetase family member 3).
