|Synonyms||ACS3, FACL3, LACS3|
|Function||Acyl-CoA synthetases (ACSL) activates long-chain fatty acids for both synthesis of cellular lipids, and degradation via beta-oxidation. ACSL3 mediates hepatic lipogenesis (By similarity). Preferentially uses myristate, laurate, arachidonate and eicosapentaenoate as substrates (By similarity). Has mainly an anabolic role in energy metabolism. Required for the incorporation of fatty acids into phosphatidylcholine, the major phospholipid located on the surface of VLDL (very low density lipoproteins).|
|Cellular Location||Mitochondrion outer membrane; Single-pass type III membrane protein. Peroxisome membrane; Single-pass type III membrane protein. Microsome membrane; Single-pass type III membrane protein. Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Single-pass type III membrane protein|

An initial reaction in fatty acid metabolism in eukaryotic cells is activation of fatty acids catalyzed by acyl-CoA synthetase. FACL3 (fatty acid CoA ligase, long-chain 3) is identified as member of the acyl-CoA synthetase (ACS) family by PCR of rat brain cDNAs using primers based on the conserved region of the ACS protein. The 720-amino acid rat protein preferentially utilizes myristate, laurate, arachidonate, and eicosapentaenoate, and is expressed primarily in brain. The predicted 720-amino acid FACL3 human protein is 92% identical to that of rat.
