Function Acyl-CoA synthetases (ACSL) activates long-chain fatty acids for both synthesis of cellular lipids, and degradation via beta-oxidation. ACSL5 may sensitize epithelial cells to apoptosis specifically triggered by the death ligand TRAIL at the villus tip of the crypt-villus axis of the small intestine (By similarity). May have a role in the survival of glioma cells (By similarity). May activate fatty acids from exogenous sources for the synthesis of triacylglycerol destined for intracellular storage. It was suggested that it may also stimulate fatty acid oxidation. Utilizes a wide range of saturated fatty acids with a preference for C16-C18 unsaturated fatty acids.
Subcellular Location Mitochondrion, Endoplasmic reticulum, Mitochondrion outer membrane, Single-pass type III membrane protein, Endoplasmic reticulum membrane, Single-pass type III membrane protein
Protein Families ATP-dependent AMP-binding enzyme family
Tissue Specificity Expressed most abundantly in the small intestine, and to a much lesser extent in the lung, liver, adrenal gland, adipose tissue and kidney.
