25794162 ). In conclusion, we found an interaction between the HLA-Cw6 and LCE genotypes on disease improvement among psoriatic patients treated with anti-TNFs.
25003994 KAR regulates ELOVL6 via two modes; KAR may induce conformational changes in ELOVL6; conversion of 3-ketoacyl-CoA to 3-hydroxyacyl-CoA by KAR may facilitate release of the product from the ELOVL6-KAR complex.
24714086 human liver samples from patients with Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis or Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis-related hepatocellular carcinoma showed an elevated expression of the elongase ELOVL6, which is responsible for the elongation of C16 fatty acids.
24113622 Elovl6 expression is significantly downregulated in human lung with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.
23903678 The study indicated that the ELOVL6 gene polymorphism rs12504538 is associated with an increased risk of T2DM, because it causes an increase in insulin resistance.
22753171 Elovl6 expression is positively correlated with severity of hepatosteatosis and liver injury in NASH patients.
21701577 Genetic variations in the ELOVL6 gene were associated with insulin sensitivity in this population-based study.
21544602 study showed cystic fibrosis cells exhibit increased metabolism along metabolic pathways leading to n-7 and n-9 fatty acids compared with wild-type cells; changes are accompanied by increased expression of Delta5, Delta6 and Delta9 desaturases and elongases 5 and 6
20332099 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
19259639 Studies suggest that inhibition of ELOVL6 could be a new therapeutic approach for the treatment of insulin resistance, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and other metabolic diseases.
