ENZYME entry: EC 1.14.19.36

Accepted Name
sn-1 acyl-lipid omega-3 desaturase (ferredoxin).
Reaction catalysed
  • A 1-gamma-linolenoyl-2-acyl-[glycerolipid] + 2 reduced ferredoxin [iron-sulfur] cluster + O(2) + 2 H(+) <=> a 1-stearidonoyl-2-acyl-[glycerolipid] + 2 oxidized ferredoxin [iron-sulfur] cluster + 2 H(2)O
  • A 1-linoleoyl-2-acyl-[glycerolipid] + 2 reduced ferredoxin [iron-sulfur] cluster + O(2) + 2 H(+) <=> a 1-alpha-linolenoyl-2-acyl-[glycerolipid] + 2 oxidized ferredoxin [iron-sulfur] cluster + 2 H(2)O
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme, characterized from cyanobacteria, introduces a cis double bond at carbon 15 of linoleoyl and gamma-linolenoyl groups attached to the sn-1 position of glycerolipids.
  • The enzyme is an omega desaturase, and determines the location of the double bond by counting three carbons from the methyl end of the fatty acid.
  • It is nonspecific with respect to the polar head group of the glycerolipid.
  • Cf. EC 1.14.19.35.
