In the cyanobacterium Spirulina platensis, the desaturation process is carried out by three desaturases: the Δ9, Δ12 and Δ6 desaturases, encoded by desC, desA and desD, respectively. The Δ6(More)
Spirulina-acyl-lipid desaturases are integral membrane proteins found in thylakoid and plasma membranes. These enzymes catalyze the fatty acid desaturation process of Spirulina to yield γ-linolenic(More)
Delta6-Desaturase (D6D) is a key enzyme that catalyzes the synthesis of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), an essential polyunsaturated fatty acid. We report here the isolation and first functional(More)
