ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
Palmitoyl-[glycerolipid] 3-(E)-desaturase.
Reaction catalysed
A 1-acyl-2-palmitoyl-[glycerolipid] + 2 reduced ferredoxin [iron-sulfur] cluster + O(2) + 2 H(+) <=> a 1-acyl-2-((3E)-hexadec-3-enoyl)-[glycerolipid] + 2 oxidized ferredoxin [iron-sulfur] cluster + 2 H(2)O
  • The enzyme introduces an unusual trans double bond at carbon 3 of a palmitoyl group attached to the sn-2 position of glycerolipids.
  • The enzyme from the plant Arabidopsis thaliana is specific for palmitate in phosphatidylglycerol.
  • The enzyme from tobacco can also accept oleate and alpha-linolenate if present at the sn-2 position of phosphatidylglycerol.
