ENZYME entry: EC 1.14.13.205

Accepted Name
Long-chain fatty acid omega-monooxygenase.
Alternative Name(s)
CYP4A.
CYP52M1.
CYP704B1.
CYP86A.
Reaction catalysed
A long-chain fatty acid + NADPH + O(2) <=> an omega-hydroxy-long-chain fatty acid + NADP(+) + H(2)O
Comment(s)
  • The plant enzyme CYP704B1, which is involved in the synthesis of sporopollenin, a complex polymer found at the outer layer of spores and pollen, acts on palmitate (18:0), stearate (18:0) and oleate (18:1).
  • The plant enzyme CYP86A1 also acts on laurate (12:0).
  • The enzyme from the yeast Starmerella bombicola (CYP52M1) acts on C(16) to C(20) saturated and unsaturated fatty acids and can also hydroxylate the (omega-1) position.
  • The mammalian enzyme CYP4A acts on laurate (12:0), myristate (14:0), palmitate (16:0), oleate (18:1), and arachidonate (20:4).
