Common Name:FATP
HGNC Symbol:SLC27A1
HGNC Description:solute carrier family 27 (fatty acid transporter), member 1
HGNC ID:10995
Chromosome:Chr.19(+): 17581300-17616977 GRCh37

Evidence:Substrate In Vitro Evidence: There are no data currently available on the functional characteristics or substrate selectivity of the human SLC27A1. The mouse ortholog, Slc27a1, has been shown to be an integral membrane protein whose expression correlates with saturable uptake of long chain fatty acids, and it is therefore thought to function as a LCFA transport protein (Schaffer JE, Lodish HF. Expression cloning and characterization of a novel adipocyte long chain fatty acid transport protein. Cell 79:427-436, 1994). Tissue Distribution Evidence: Northern blot analysis showed highest expression of hFATP1 in skeletal muscle and heart, moderate expression in pancreas and brain, and low levels in placenta, lung, and liver (Martin G, Nemoto M, Gelman L, Geffroy S, Najib J, Fruchart JC, Roevens P, de Martinville B, Deeb S, Auwerx J. The human fatty acid transport protein-1 (SLC27A1; FATP-1) cDNA and gene: organization, chromosomal localization, and expression. Genomics 66(3): 296-304, 2000).

GTEx Expression by Gene and Transcript

The heat map summarizes relative expression by tissue type at two levels of tissue detail, e.g., 'Brain' and 'Brain - Amygdala'. Choose among four calculated expression values, including mean and median RPKM values, and quantile normalized (QN) distributions of these values. (Note that differences between some distributions are subtle.) The coloring is relative to the mean of all displayed values. All values are log base 2. (See also PMT GTEx Expression Plotting.)
