Acyl-CoA synthetases (ACSs) play an essential role in fatty acid metabolism. ACS3 is an arachidonate-preferring enzyme expressed in a wide range of human tissues including brain, heart, placenta, prostate, skeletal muscle, testis and thymus. As an initial step to understanding the transcriptional regulation of the human ACS3 gene, we analyzed the genomic organization and transcription units of the human ACS3 gene. Sequence analysis of genomic clones demonstrates that the human ACS3 gene spans… CONTINUE READING
