ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
(11Z)-hexadec-11-enoyl-CoA conjugase.
Reaction catalysed
(11Z)-hexadec-11-enoyl-CoA + reduced acceptor + O(2) <=> (10E,12Z)-hexadeca-10,12-dienoyl-CoA + acceptor + 2 H(2)O
  • The enzyme, characterized from the silk moth Bombyx mori, catalyzes a step in the pathway for the biosynthesis of bombykol, a sex pheromone produced by the moth.
  • The enzyme converts a single cis double bond at position 11 of (11Z)- hexadec-11-enoyl-CoA into conjugated 10 trans and 12 cis double bonds.
  • Prior to catalyzing this reaction, the enzyme catalyzes the introduction of the cis bond in position 11 (cf. EC
