Protein

Fatty acyl-CoA reductase 1

Gene

FAR1

Organism
Homo sapiens (Human)
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: -Experimental evidence at protein leveli

Functioni

Catalyzes the reduction of saturated and unsaturated C16 or C18 fatty acyl-CoA to fatty alcohols (PubMed:15220348, PubMed:24108123). It plays an essential role in the production of ether lipids/plasmalogens which synthesis requires fatty alcohols (PubMed:20071337, PubMed:24108123). In parallel, it is also required for wax monoesters production since fatty alcohols also constitute a substrate for their synthesis (By similarity).By similarity3 Publications

Catalytic activityi

A long-chain acyl-CoA + 2 NADPH = CoA + a long-chain alcohol + 2 NADP+.1 Publication
