Long-chain-fatty-acid--CoA ligase ACSBG1 (ACSBG1)

Mediates activation of long-chain fatty acids for both synthesis of cellular lipids, and degradation through beta-oxidation. Able to activate long-chain fatty acids.

Also able to activate very long-chain fatty acids; however, the relevance of such activity is unclear in vivo. Can activate varied saturated, monosaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids.
