Systematic name YKL188C
Gene name PXA2
Aliases PAT1
Feature type ORF, Verified
Coordinates Chr XI:88786..86225
Primary SGDID S000001671

Description of YKL188C: Subunit of a heterodimeric peroxisomal ATP-binding cassette transporter complex (Pxa1p-Pxa2p), required for import of long-chain fatty acids into peroxisomes; similarity to human adrenoleukodystrophy transporter ABCD1 and ABCD2 and ALD-related proteins; mutations in ABCD1 cause X-linked adrenoleukodystrophy (X-ALD), a peroxisomal disorder[1][2][3][4]
