Condensing enzyme that exhibits activity toward saturated C18 into C26 acyl-CoA substrates, with the highest activity towards C22:0 acyl-CoA. May participate in the production of both saturated and monounsaturated VLCFAs of different chain lengths that are involved in multiple biological processes as precursors of membrane lipids and lipid mediators.
Expressed in a broad variety of tissues. Highly expressed in stomach, lung, kidney, skin and intestine. Moderately expressed in white adipose tissue, liver, spleen, brain, brown adipose tissue, heart and muscle. Weakly expressed in testis.
