Microsomes from young leaves of pea,Pisum sativum L., metabolized oleate principally by the reactions mediated by oleoyl-CoA synthetase, oleoyl-CoA thioesterase, oleoyl-CoA: phosphatidylcholine acyltransferase and oleoyl phosphatidylcholine desaturase. Hydrogen peroxide specifically inhibited oleate desaturation and the evidence presented argues for a specific inhibition of the terminal enzyme of the desaturase system, i.e. oleoyl phosphatidylcholine desaturase. Catalase, ascorbic acid, or… CONTINUE READING
