DESCRIPTION
Also known as DES2_SORBI, DES2. Delta(12) fatty acid desaturase converting palmitoleic acid (16:1(9)) to hexadecadienoic acid (16:2(9,12)). No detectable Delta(12)linoleate desaturase activity. Involved in the biosynthesis of the aliphatic side chain of sorgoleone, a phytotoxic secondary metabolite playing a direct role in allelopathic interactions.
