ENZYME entry: EC 1.14.19.24

Accepted Name
acyl-CoA 11-(E)-desaturase
Reaction catalysed
an 11,12-saturated fatty acyl-CoA + 2 Fe(II)-[cytochrome b5] + 2 H(+) + O2 = an (11E)-Delta(11)-fatty acyl-CoA + 2 Fe(III)-[cytochrome b5] + 2 H2O
Comment(s)
  • Involved in sex pheromone synthesis in the Lepidoptera (moths).
  • The enzyme from the moth Spodoptera littoralis prefers 13:0 and 14:0 substrates.
  • The product is formed by the stereospecific removal of the pro-R H at C-11 and the pro-S H at C-12. cf. EC 1.14.19.5.
  • Formerly EC 1.14.99.31.
