  • Function
    Component of a lipid metabolic pathway that catalyzes biosynthesis of highly unsaturated fatty acids (HUFA) from precursor essential polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) linoleic acid (LA) (18:2n-6) and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) (18:3n-3). Catalyzes the desaturation of dihomo-gamma-linoleic acid (DHGLA) (20:3n-6) and eicosatetraenoic acid (20:4n-3) to generate arachidonic acid (AA) (20:4n-6) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA)(20:5n-3) respectively.
  • Tissue specificity
    Expressed in many tissues, it is most abundant in the liver, brain, adrenal gland and heart. Found as well in skeletal muscle, lung, placenta, kidney, pancreas and retina.
  • Pathway
    Lipid metabolism; polyunsaturated fatty acid biosynthesis.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the fatty acid desaturase family.
    Contains 1 cytochrome b5 heme-binding domain.
  • Developmental stage
    Highly expressed in fetal liver and fetal brain.
  • Domain
    The histidine box domains may contain the active site and/or be involved in metal ion binding.
  • Cellular localization
    Endoplasmic reticulum membrane.
