FunctionComponent 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 specificityExpressed 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.
PathwayLipid metabolism; polyunsaturated fatty acid biosynthesis.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the fatty acid desaturase family.
Contains 1 cytochrome b5 heme-binding domain.
Developmental stageHighly expressed in fetal liver and fetal brain.
DomainThe histidine box domains may contain the active site and/or be involved in metal ion binding.
Cellular localizationEndoplasmic reticulum membrane.
