Heterologous Expression of PA8FAD9 and Functional Characterization of a Δ9-Fatty Acid Desaturase from a Cold-Tolerant Pseudomonas sp. A8.

Abstract

Fatty acid desaturase enzymes are capable of inserting double bonds between carbon atoms of saturated fatty acyl-chains to produce unsaturated fatty acids. A gene coding for a putative Δ9-fatty acid desaturase-like protein was isolated from a cold-tolerant Pseudomonas sp. A8, cloned and heterologously expressed in Escherichia coli. The gene named as PA8FAD9… (More)
