Biosynthesis of C18 polyunsaturated fatty acids in microsomal membrane preparations from the filamentous fungus Mucor circinelloides.

Abstract

The biosynthesis of C18 polyunsaturated fatty acids has been studied in the fungus Mucor circinelloides. Microsomal membrane preparations contained delta9, delta12 and delta6 desaturase activities. The delta9 desaturase exhibited characteristics similar to those of the animal and yeast delta9 desaturases in being membrane bound and utilising stearoyl-CoA as… (More)
