  IntEnz view ENZYME view


DE   Palmitoyl-(glycerolipid) 7-desaturase.
CA   A 1-acyl-2-palmitoyl-(glycerolipid) + 2 reduced ferredoxin (iron-sulfur)
CA   cluster + O(2) + 2 H(+) = a 1-acyl-2-((7Z)-hexadec-7-enoyl)-
CA   (glycerolipid) + 2 oxidized ferredoxin (iron-sulfur) cluster + 2 H(2)O.
CC   -!- The enzyme introduces a cis double bond at carbon 7 of a palmitoyl
CC       group attached to the sn-2 position of glycerolipids.
CC   -!- The enzyme from the plant Arabidopsis thaliana is specific for
CC       palmitate in monogalactosyldiacylglycerol.
