ENZYME entry: EC 1.14.19.10

Accepted Name
Icosanoyl-CoA 5-desaturase.
Alternative Name(s)
Acyl-CoA Delta(5)-desaturase.
Reaction catalysed
Icosanoyl-CoA + 2 ferrocytochrome b5 + O(2) + 2 H(+) <=> (Z)-icos-5-enoyl-CoA + 2 ferricytochrome b5 + 2 H(2)O
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme, characterized from the plant Limnanthes douglasii (meadowfoam), is involved in the biosynthesis of (5Z)-icos-5-enoate, an unusual monounsaturated fatty acid that makes up to 60% of the total fatty acids in Limnanthes sp. seed oil.
  • The enzyme only acts on saturated fatty acids.
