Gene View
Common Name:FATP6
HGNC Symbol:SLC27A6
HGNC Description:solute carrier family 27 (fatty acid transporter), member 6
HGNC ID:11000
Chromosome:Chr.5(+): 128300951-128369335 GRCh37
OMIM Phenotype:None
Nucleotide RefSeq:NM_001017372
Protein RefSeq:NP_001017372
Evidence:Substrate In Vitro Evidence: 1. Transient and stable transfection of FATP6 in HEK293 cells enhanced uptake of long chain fatty acids. Gimeno, RE et al. JBC 2003 My 2, 278(18):16039-44 PMID 12556534. Tissue Distribution Evidence: 1. FATP6 is principally expressed in the heart and was localized to cardiac myocytes by ISH. Immunofluorescence studies of FATP6 in monkey and murine hearts revealed that the protein is exclusively located on the sarcolemma (colocalizes with CD36). FATP6 is probably involved in heart long chain fatty acid uptake, and it may play a role in the pathogenesis of lipid-related cardiac disorders. Gimeno, RE et al. JBC 2003 My 2, 278(18):16039-44 PMID 12556534.

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.)
