Acyl-CoA desaturase 4

Gene

Scd4

Organism
Mus musculus (Mouse)
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: -Experimental evidence at protein leveli

Functioni

Stearyl-CoA desaturase that utilizes O2 and electrons from reduced cytochrome b5 to introduce the first double bond into saturated fatty acyl-CoA substrates. Catalyzes the insertion of a cis double bond at the delta-9 position into fatty acyl-CoA substrates including palmitoyl-CoA and stearoyl-CoA (PubMed:12815040, PubMed:16443825). Required for the biosynthesis of membrane phospholipids, cholesterol esters and triglycerides (By similarity).By similarity2 Publications

Catalytic activityi

Stearoyl-CoA + 2 ferrocytochrome b5 + O2 + 2 H+ = oleoyl-CoA + 2 ferricytochrome b5 + 2 H2O.2 Publications

Cofactori

Fe2+By similarityNote: Expected to bind 2 Fe2+ ions per subunit.By similarity
