Enzyme Commission Primary Name: acyl-[acyl-carrier protein] 6-desaturase
Standard Gibbs Free Energy (ΔrG'° in kcal/mol): -56.580048 [Latendresse13]
Enzyme Commission Summary:
The enzyme, characterized from the plant Thunbergia alata (black-eyed Susan vine) endosperm, introduces a cis double bond at carbon 6 of several saturated acyl-[acp]s. It is most active with palmitoyl-[acp] (16:0), but can also act on myristoyl-[acp] (14:0) and stearoyl-[acp] (18:0). The position of the double bond is determined by its distance from the carboxyl end of the fatty acid.
