23840832 The prominent expression of ACSL3 in VSMC.
23762027 activation of fatty acid import is linked to the up-regulation of cellular long chain acyl-CoA synthetase activity and identify the long chain acyl-CoA syntheatse3 (Acsl3) as a novel host factor required for polio replication.
23125841 Tandem affinity purification and mass spectrometry analysis identify acyl-CoA synthetase long-chain family member 3 (ACSL3), HIV-1 Gag, Gag/Pol, gp120, and Nef incorporated into staufen1 RNP complexes isolated from HIV-1-expressing cells

22190034 Tandem affinity purification and mass spectrometry analysis identify acyl-CoA synthetase long-chain family member 3 (ACSL3), HIV-1 Gag, Gag/Pol, gp120, and Nef incorporated into staufen1 RNP complexes isolated from HIV-1-expressing cells
21328461 expression of ACSL3 was induced by endoplasmic reticulum stress
20605918 Results suggest that initiation of Golgi export of Lyn involves association of ACSL3 with the Lyn C-lobe, which is exposed to the molecular surface in an open conformation.
20308079 ACSL3 is a novel molecular target of PPARdelta in HepG2 cells; there is a regulatory mechanism for ACSL3 transcription in liver tissue
20219900 Results suggest that liver X receptors play a regulatory role in fatty acid metabolism by direct regulation of ACSL3 in human placental trophoblast cells.
19221603 Data suggest that methylated ACSL3 5'CpG islands in umbilical cord white blood cell DNA may be a surrogate endpoint for transplacental polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon exposure and/or a potential biomarker for environmentally-related asthma.
18003621 Small interfering RNA targeting ACSL3 inhibits secretion of hepatitis c virus from human hepatoma-derived cells
17901542 Data suggest that endogenous FATP4 does not function to translocate fatty acids across the plasma membrane, but functions more as a very long-chain acyl-CoA synthetase.
17761945 Oncostatin M directly lowers the plasma triglycerides in hyperlipidemia by stimulating the transcription of ACSL3/5 in the liver.
15556626 Repression of FAS mRNA expression is the consequence of feedback inhibition of FAS expression by long chain fatty acyl-CoAs, which are formed by FACL3 during its upregulation by vitamin D3in prostate cancer cells.
11707336 Sequence analysis of genomic clones demonstrates that the human ACS3 gene spans at least 80.6 kb and contains 17 exons.
