|Alcohol-forming fatty acyl-CoA reductase.
|A long-chain acyl-CoA + 2 NADPH <=> CoA + a long-chain alcohol + 2 NADP(+)|
- The enzyme has been characterized from the plant Simmondsia chinensis
- The alcohol is formed by a four-electron reduction of fatty acyl-CoA.
- Although the reaction proceeds through an aldehyde intermediate,
a free aldehyde is not released.
- The recombinant enzyme was shown to accept saturated and mono-
unsaturated fatty acyl-CoAs of 16 to 22 carbons.
