The amino acid residues serine at position 213 (S213) and lysine at position 218 (K218), which are present in close proximity to the histidine-rich motif II of Mucor rouxii fatty acid Delta(6)-desaturase isoform II, were targeted for studying structure-function relationships using site-directed mutagenesis. The mutants were functionally characterized in a(More)
The Delta(6)-fatty acid desaturase is a key enzyme in the synthesis of an important fatty acid, gamma-linolenic acid. We have characterized, by heterologous expression in Saccharomyces cerevisiae, substrate specificity and preference of Delta(6)-desaturase of Mucor rouxii. Fatty acid supplementation was carried out based on the predicted enzyme topology,(More)
