SCD5 (Q86SK9) - Overview - Molecular Target Synopsis
SCD5, Stearoyl-CoA desaturase 5
Enzyme Classification 220.127.116.11
Also Known as SCD5_HUMAN, SCD5, ACOD4, SCD2, SCD4
Stearyl-CoA desaturase that utilizes O(2) and electrons from reduced cytochrome b5 to introduce the first double bond into saturated fatty acyl-CoA substrates. Catalyzes the insertion of a cis double bond at the delta-9 position into fatty acyl-CoA substrates including palmitoyl-CoA and stearoyl-CoA (PubMed:15907797, PubMed:15610069). Gives rise to a mixture of 16:1 and 18:1 unsaturated fatty acids. May self-associate and form homodimers.
