Systematic name YMR110C
Gene name HFD1
Feature type ORF, Verified
Coordinates Chr XIII:491992..490394
Primary SGDID S000004716

Description of YMR110C: Hexadecenal dehydrogenase; involved in the conversion of sphingosine 1-phosphate breakdown product hexadecenal to hexadecenoic acid; located in the mitochondrial outer membrane and also in lipid particles; has similarity to ALDH3A2, a human fatty aldehyde dehydrogenase (FALDH) mutated in Sjogren-Larsson syndrome, a neurocutaneous disorder[1][2]
