DESCRIPTION
Also known as LCF1_SCHPO, lcf1. Esterification, concomitant with transport, of exogenous long-chain fatty acids into metabolically active CoA thioesters for subsequent degradation or incorporation into phospholipids. It may supplement intracellular myristoyl-CoA pools from exogenous myristate. Preferentially acts on C12:0-C16:0 fatty acids with myristic and pentadecanic acid (C15:0) having the highest activities (By similarity). Appears to play a role in the maintenance of cell viability during stationary phase.
